The 127mm Compatto is a naval gun turret of Italian origin. It was developed in the late 1960\'s by OTO Melara at the request of the Italian navy. The Compatto design uses many technologies and principles found as found in the 76mm OTO Melara cannon. Recent upgrade plans include a longer 62-caliber barrel that may fire guided rounds at distances of over 100 km.
The MLRS is a multiple rocket launcher of US origin. It was developed in the late 1970\'s to meet a joint US, UK, German and French requirement. The name MLRS stands for Multiple Launch Rocket System.
The MG4 is a modern light machine gun of German origin. It was developed by Heckler & Koch in order to provide the German military with a light machine gun in order to supplement the older and heavier MG3. The MG4 is a direct competitor to the widely used Belgian FN Minimi.
The PLZ07 is a modern self-propelled howitzer of Chinese origin. It was developed in the early 2000\'s to supplement and replace the older 122mm self-propelled howitzers in Chinese service.
The RSD-10 Pioner is a Cold War era intermediate range ballistic missile system with nuclear warheads of Soviet origin. In the West it is known by the NATO reporting name SS-20 Saber and it is also known as the RT-21M. The name RSD-10 Pioner stands for Raketa Sredney Dalnosti \"Pioner\", which is Russian for Medium-Range Missile \"Pioneer\". The RSD-10 was developed concurrently with the longer range RT-21 Temp-2S (SS-16) and shared a similar first and second stage. The RSD-10 was notable for two reasons. First, it was the first Soviet solid fuel nuclear missile, thus providing a true road mobile fast reaction system. Second, it was a move away from the strategy of mutually assured destruction towards smaller yield pinpoint strikes.
