6 is Atomic Annie. It was based on a German railroad car gun and was designed to fire a nuclear warhead.

When I was taking an undergraduate archaeology class a couple of us tried to make and use a spear and atlatl just for kicks. Through trial and error we kinda sorta made it work but if our food supply had been dependent upon it we would have gone hungry.

It was entrenched and looks like it was behind barbed wire so it would have been defensive.

I have to give it to patriot45, he got the type more correct. But you were on the right track, and it is a type of en-earthed mine. Proper name is a Abwehrflammenwerfer 42, a German weapon.

Seven looks like a short range weapon for use in trench warfare, WWI based on the look of the photo and uniforms.

I've read about a trench mortar but haven't seen one. Looks like it would make a heckuva bang on the other end.

#10 is a Russian T-37 light tank....

http://www.theeasternfront.co.uk/Graphics/t37.jpg

Armour: 10mm

Weight: 3 tons.

Armament: 1 x 7.62mm DT Mg.

Speed: 35kmh (21mph) on road, 15kmh (9mph) cross country.

Range: 185km (115 miles) on road, 115km (72 miles) cross country.

Crew: 2, driver and commander/gunner.

The T-37 entered production in 1933. A small and lightly armed vehicle, it was unique in that it had an amphibious capability. Based on the British Vickers VCL amphibian tank, the design was modified several times before it was finally accepted for production. The vehicle suffered from waterproofing problems due to its riveted construction, but this was overcome in 1935 by the introduction of an all welded hull. In addition to its amphibious capabilities, the vehicle was very robust and reliable.
In 1937 a modernized version was introduced and the changes were so extensive that the vehicle was redesignated the T-38. The vehicle had an improved hull design that lowered the vehicles profile and reduced its weight. The vehicle also incorporated a new suspension system, a new steering system and wider tracks, which combined to improve its handling and cross country performance. Production of the T-38 ended in 1939, but both vehicles remained in service during the early period of the campaign.

I think we all know it's a mortar. My problem is that at first I thought it was a trench mortar but now I think it's ship/boat-based. Not a hedgehog but like an individual hedgehog in appearance.
