Announcement: New website released

01.18.08

We are pleased to inform you all that our new improved 2.0 website is now live. Our old website dated four years back and for a good while we had wanted to replace it with an improved one that would provide clearer navigation and more expansive features as well as have distinctive World War II atmosphere.

You might notice the lack of authentic WWII photographs. Instead of recycling the authentic but too-many-times-seen photos we thought to create 100% original visuals. In addition, our customers also sent in reenactment photos of which were utilized (see the details of our ongoing contest later in this email). We hope the result is refreshing and eye-pleasing browsing experience!

As for the products in our site we continue to work hard to provide more details, photos and video to help you to understand their appearance, features and mechanisms. This is on-going work (actually never-ending!) and we will keep you updated as we add material to the site.
