    I forgot to say, yeah that is the Italian armored car, also known as Sahariana.

    Correct, it was a WW2 German jet bomber that was actually operation at the very end of the war. It is yours.

    Was used against bridge of Remagen.

    The most notable use of the Ar 234 in the bomber role was the attempt to destroy the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen.[14] Between 7 March, when it was captured by the Allies, and 17 March, when it finally collapsed, the bridge was continually attacked by Ar 234s of III/KG 76 carrying 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) bombs.

    According to Wikipedia, this image depicts a Boeing P-12E biplane of the US Army, currently resting in the National Military Museum of Hawaii.

    Thanks pal! Next one is, according to Wilfrid Pym Trotter, one of the earliest pictures of a ship of the line:

    I don't have the book by Pym Trotter and the image is not of any great quality.
    To me it looks like one ship on top of another.

    Going to take a guess since I did not find the specific image...

    SMS Kaiser after battle of Lissa?

    It's not SMS Kaiser. In fact the photo was taken before Kaiser was even constructed. Trotter's book concerns exclusively the Royal Navy, so she served under the British.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Hint: She played a very important role, during Nelson's brilliant career.

    I was tempted to wait and see if someone jumps on this and say Victory.

    But it's HMS San Josef. Originally a Spanish 114-gun first rate San José, it was captured by Nelson at battle of Cape St. Vincent after it got entagled with San Nicholas, which was being boarded by Nelson's crew.

    San José is indeed the correct answer! It's one of the late 18th century Spanish ships, which actually served more time under the British than under the Iberians. Sarin has the ground.

    Sorry about the size, it's hard to find a good image of this thing.

    Looks like a version of the Bell AH-1 Cobra.
    Perhaps Model 249.

    How about a higher resolution image then?

    It's quite hard to find a reliable image without registering to some site. This is the best I can do:
