A work in progress list of the real-life counterparts for the GI Joe line of vehicles.


Please feel free to update and fill out the list as re-uses are currently not listed nor are all 100% confirmed. Please do not delete possibilities listed, but feel free to add potential real world inspirations. Due to the scale, and liberties taken with designs, many weapons have multiple possible counterparts. As such, the list would be more useful if it lists as many possibilities as are reasonable.
