Thought experiment - National Re-armament Program

Here’s an interesting little project that I thought might give people a chance to exercise their creative skills and pass some time this summer. Here is the premise:

It is the end of 1935. Germany is rearming; Japanese forces are in China; Italy has occupied Ethiopia. You are tasked by a major company in the armaments industy to provide workable designs for a series of weapons systems to meet a future national requirement for your nation’s armed forces. These are to include a light or medium tank/tank destroyer, a multipurpose armoured utility vehicle/recce vehicle, a fighter/fighter bomber, a tactical or strategic bomber aircraft.
