There was a lot of new pieces of equipment used for the first time in world war two. Some were developed before the war and used for the first time in a war; and others were developed and used during the war. Here are a few of them: Ballistic Missiles (German V-2), Cruise Missiles (German V-1), jet fighters & bombers, atomic bombs, acoustic homing torpedoes, primitive computers, radio controlled aircraft and vehicles, radio controlled glider bombs, special amphibious landing craft, parachuting combat troops, scuba equipped divers, RADAR, Identification Friend or Foe (IFF), variable timed fused artillery or proximity fused anti-aircraft ammunition, specialized solid-shot high velocity armor penetrating ammunition, napalm bombs, helicopters, modern aircraft carriers, and short-range squad radios.
