I have a penchant for planes, although I'll do ships every one in a while. My #1 thing to do is to make alternate-history stuff, but I also work with stuff that actually existed sometime in history.

Harghita-class light cruiser [TRL]
One of the more capable ships of Românea's navy, it's like a pocket variant of the Szent Erzebet-class heavy cruiser, but smaller. The main purpose of the class was for convoy protection, destroyer flotilla leading, as well as convoy raiding. Comparable to the Karansebes-class light cruiser, the Spahkreuzer 1938-class light cruiser, and the Expedient-class light cruiser.

Class Members: 
CL-5 Harghita
CL-6 Sibiu
CL-8 Brașov  

8x 152mm/45 M1934 cannons (2x4 turrets)
4x 130mm/50 M1927 dual-purpose cannons (1x4 turrets)
12x 40mm/60 M1939 anti-aircraft cannons (2x4 twin mounts and 1x4 single mounts)
6x 533mm M1932 torpedoes (2x3 mounts)
120x mines in the stern (although they were used sporadically in service, and they also acted as spares for other minelayers)
1x IAR-17 reconnaissance seaplane (has to be launched and recovered from the sea since there was no catapults present)

Complement: 510 enlisted/officers
Speed: 31 knots
Length: 165.2 meters
Height: 32.3 meters (from the keel) or 26.8 meters (from the waterline)
Bristol Blenheim Mk. I [EC-AH]
The first major variant of the early-war bomber fielded by the British. I also don't do the South Americans a lot, for reasons unknown to me. It's probably because nothing big there occurred there besides the Chaco War during the years prior to World War II.

Ordered in late 1937, the Blenheims fielded by Ecuador was used as reconnaissance & maritime patrol aircraft against revolutionaries and in rare cases, Japanese submarines straying too close to their waters. It was also involved in a few incidents with Peruvian forces, notably when one was forced down on the border in 1941; it was successfully mediated. The remaining aircraft retired in 1948, replacing them with American-made maritime patrol aircraft.
Marton RMI-8 [HU-AH]
Experimental pusher-pull design of Hungarian origin. It's like a Fokker D.XXIII, but for the Axis.

Powered by a pair of Daimler-Benz DB-605A 12-cylinder inline engines, it was like a push-pull Bf 109. Armament was to include either a single 20mm MG-151/20 cannon or a 30mm MK-108 cannon firing through the propeller spinner in a engine installation, while it was supplemented by a pair of either 12.7mm GKM 40M machine guns or 13.2mm MG-131 machine guns. Assuming logistics and all that stuff, I'd have to go for the 20mm/13.2mm combo.

The prototype was destroyed by a American bombing raid in July 1944, but papers about it's existence still survives to this day. 
Mikoyan-Gurevich DIS [SU-AH]
(9/20/18: New life given.)

The Mikoyan-Gurevich DIS was a twin-engine heavy fighter. Originally powered by a pair of supercharged AM-37 inline engines, the project in it's entirety was a failure as the AM-37 was horribly unreliable. Here, it is outfitted with a pair of the more reliable AM-38 inline engines. 

Entering service mid July 1942, pilots reported the aircraft as a ideal firing platform, fast, maneuverable, and a fast climber, especially against German medium/heavy bombers. The only cons was that it was overweight and the control struggled to respond, esp. at a high altitude.

Experiments were tried with 37mm NS-37 and 45mm NS-45 cannons in a gunpod, but it was not put into service because they were needed for Ilyushin's Il-2M-Type 3M ground attacker, the LaGG-3-IT, and the Yak-9K heavy fighter respectively, but there were cases of ground crews field modifying them in the field at the request of their pilots.

Although it can hold itself against the early Bf-109Gs and the Fw-190A-4s, starting with the G-6 and the A-5, it was vulnerable to them. It was later pulled back to second-line duties such as recon, harassment bombing, and liaison at the end of the war.
