The construction of new battleships and aircraft carriers capable of speeds over 30 knots also required modern new destroyers capable of up to 38 knots. Consequently in January 1940 the General Ship Board responsible for these plans decided that a new destroyer should be designed with a 127 mm main armament in five gun turrets and 10 torpedo tubes. By the end of 1940 orders for 100 ships of the future Fletcher Class were placed with 11 different shipyards. When the USA came into the war in December 1941, the navy placed a further 75 orders. The DD-445 USS Fletcher type called after Admiral Frank F. Fletcher was launched on 3rd May 1942 from Federal Shipbuilding in Kearny, New Jersey. Unlike previous US destroyers the hull of the ship was able to withstand much heavier loads, so that the destroyer driven by two high-pressure steam turbines with a capacity of 60,000 shp reached a top speed of 37 knots. The maximum cruising speed under operational conditions was 32 to 33 knots. Modern radar equipment ensured that she was also fully operational by night and in poor visibility. Some parts of the superstructure were clad in 12 mm hardened steel armour increased to as much as 19 mm armour plating in vital areas of the hull. Thanks to a very conservative construction, a powerful power plant and extensive modern radar and sensor systems, the ships of the Fletcher Class proved to be the most successful US Navy destroyers in the 2nd World War.

Originally developed in the early 1930s, this light armored carrier was capable of towing light artillery and was also designed for use in supplying infantry units at the front lines. Its compact design meant that the heads of the two crew members protruded from the chassis, so distinctive semi-spherical hatches were created to give them a little protection. The initial production of 60 vehicles was soon supplemented by larger orders as France sought to re-equip its army to face the growing threat of Germany. By 1940, approximately 4,800 had been built, including an improved version featuring 4-step gearbox and towing shackles. It was used in the early days of WWII by the French army until its surrender, after which the German army used captured vehicles until the end of the war, modifying some of them into self-propelled guns.

The 'Tross' or train of a company or battery in the Wehrmacht was composed of three groups, the combat train, the baggage train and the ration train. The latter was equipped with a field kitchen for the company and suitable transport for the rations. The actual type of field kitchen and ration vehicle (or vehicles) depended on the type of unit - horse - or truck-drawn - in an ordinary infantry division, but sometimes completely truckdrawn in a panzer division or other types of machanised division. Within a division, ration supply was organised through a distributing point, and distribution to the ration trains within the division was made daily at this point, iperational commitments permitting. Within the company each man carried in his pack or bread bag one day's rations, and one further day's rations was carried in the unit field kitchen, with a further two day's rations in the supply transport of the unit. Afurther supply of one day's rations was carried in the divisional supply columns. The supply problem was formidable when it is considered that to supply daily rations for each man in a typical division there was a requirement for 12 tons of bread, 2.88 tons of meat, 2.88 tons of peas, and 1.92 tons of wurst (sausage), plus proportionate quantities of coffee, sugar, butter and salt. A typical field kitchen was horse-drawn behind a two man limber and had cart wheels. There were several varying patterns of field kitchen and alternative pneumatic-tyred wheels could be fitted if the kitchen was drawn by a truck.
