The T-20 Komsomolets was a Soviet artillery tractor used by the Red Army during the Winter War and the Second World War. Developed at the Ordzhonikidze Moscow Plant no.37, the tractor was produced between 1936 and 1941 and over 4,000 units were built during that period.
The T-20 was intended to tow artillery-type weapons including the 45 mm anti-tank gun and the M1938 120 mm mortar. It also carried a small quantity of ammunition supplies and up to six crew members. The driver and the commander sit in the forward compartment armoured with a Degtyaryov machine gun. The rear compartment had room for the rest of the crew seated back-to-back. A canvas top could be raised in case of bad weather conditions.
During Operation Barbarossa some T-20s served as combat vehicles, however after 1941 they were deployed only as armoured tractors.

Meng Model 1:35 - D9R Armoured Bulldozer - Plastic model kit #SS-002
Designed and manufactured by Caterpillar Inc., the D9 bulldozer is equipped with a large blade and a rear ripper attachment, and weighs 49 tons. Due to its size and reliability, it has become one of the most popular track-type tractors in the world. The Caterpillar does not manufacture a military version of the D9, but the bulldozer has still been used in military operations, for instance during the Vietnam War the US Army used D9's to clear forests.
The Israeli Defense Forces acquired a number of these bulldozers and modified them for military combat engineering use. The Israeli Armoured bulldozer D9R is used by the IDF Combat Engineering Corps for combat engineering and counter-terrorism operations. Currently about 100 D9R armoured bulldozers are in service with Israel. In 2003 US Army and Marine Corps acquired a total of 14 D9R armored bulldozers from the IDF for deployment in Iraq.

Miniart 1:35 - US Tractor D7 with Angled Dozer Blade - Plastic model kit #35184
The D7 was a medium bulldozer deployed by the US Army during WWII. It was produced by Caterpillar Inc., in 1938 and as such was also known as the Caterpillar D7.
During WWII, D7 tractors with blades were often used for earthworks. However, they also served for moving military equipment, when the blades were removed. There were four variants for the blades: a straight blade (S-blade), a universal blade (U-blade), an S-U combination blade and an angled blade. The angled blade was attached to the bulldozer C-frame and had three set positions: right angle, left angle, and centred.
The further development of the series was marked by the appearance of the D7D, D7E, D7F, D7G, D7H and D7R models. The latest version of the tractor was introduced in 2008. It was the D7E bulldozer improved with a 235 hp diesel engine.
