The last picture: "nazi" plane? Nazi was the party, the army was GERMAN. Unfortunately we observe continuous dilution of German responsibility by calling the enemy "nazi", but in fact it was the German state - how many nazis were non-German?

To poster # 6, Boris, just like not all German's were Nazi's, not all Nazi's were German, there were Austrian Nazis, Italian Nazis, Yugoslavian Nazis, Hungarian Nazis, etc. Naziism (Fascism) wasn't unique to Germany though they were the most successful at it. I don't think anyone was trying to "dilute the responsibility of Germany", it's simply what most people choose to call Hitler's (Nazi Germany's) military. Educate yourself before opening your mouth and inserting your foot...

Nazi = the first two syllables of Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP)

#1 Jagdtiger (not Jagtiger!) in 1940!?!?!
Jagdtiger ("Hunting Tiger") = German heavy tank destroyer = Panzerjger Tiger Ausf. , the heaviest armored fighting vehicle operationally used during World War II. The vehicle carried a 128 mm main gun, capable of out-ranging and defeating any fielded Allied tank. It saw service in small numbers from late 1944.
