A pretty wide variety.. far too many to be feasibly listed here, and includes small arms ranging from flintlock rifles to the (then) latest assault rifles, armored vehicles, field artillery pieces, antiaircraft artillery, guided and unguided bombs, etc. Could you try narrowing your scope a little bit?
