    What kind of weapons might have seen service if the war had started under different circumstances, such as the cancelled procurement of the Pattern 1913 Enfield in .276 Enfield, the Meunier rifle, and the Lyon class dreadnoughts, among many other projects?

    Did anything see service but in a less prominent role than is commonly appreciated, such as indirect fire machine guns and the M1917 Enfield and M1916 Mosin-Nagant which equipped millions of American soldiers?

    Is there anything interesting that was experimented in during the Great War and found to be useful or rejected, such as .600 Nitro Express rifles for counter-sniping and the Tsar tank?

    What kind of infantry equipment, vehicles, aircraft, warships, and tactics might have seen service if World War I had stretched into 1919 and beyond?

    There were several armored vehicle projects being worked on towards the end of World War I.

    The United Kingdom and United States were gearing up production of the Mark VIII heavy tank as the centerpiece of the 1919 Spring Offensive.

    Separately, the United Kingdom was working on the Medium Mark C light tank program and the Mark IX armored personnel carrier program. They were designed to exploit breakthroughs created by the heavy tanks.

    France was working on the Char 2C superheavy tank. The Renault FT) was also licensed to the United States and Italy to allow domestic production to equip their forces.

    Italy had completed two prototype Fiat 2000 heavy tanks.

    Imperial Germany had prototypes for the K-Wagen superheavy tank nearing completion and was beginning design work on the Sturmpanzerwagen Oberschlesien light tank.
