A watercraft designed to travel on top of bodies of water. A favored tool of pirates and criminals.
Cars go places. Hopefully fast.
Helicopters are flying vehicles, typically with a single large main rotor to maintain lift with a tail rotor to counter rotation induced by this main rotor. They are useful in air to ground combat as well as for quickly inserting and recovering infantry close to the front line.
A homing missile is a missile that locks on to and follows its target. Homing missiles are featured in lots of games, from old school to new school.
Machine guns, generally, are heavier weapons with a rapid rate of fire. To quote the Quake manual, they "eat ammo like popcorn."
An indirect fire weapon which lobs shells (generally explosive) on an arcing trajectory. It is muzzle-loaded, capable of attacking targets at close range unlike traditional artillery.
A nuclear bomb is a device made up of fissionable materials (ie Uranium) and standard explosives. It creates a nuclear chain reaction, which release large amounts of radiation and a shockwave.
Sometimes you'll encounter big-ass ramps, often in racing games.
