I think the last pic is a artillery gun called the atomic Betty.

if I'm right , it was used to fire atomic artillery shells

Close: Atomic Annie. M65 240mm projectile. Approximately 20 were made, and was deployed in Europe. Had one and one only test firing, code named Grable. It sent a 15kt shell a distance of 7 miles.

Picture 1 is only listed in the Authenticast catalog as a Japanese heavy/medium tank, cat. # 5057. I can't find any good reference on it. It may be a Type 95 heavy tank, or the experimental not produced Type O-1.

Picture 2 is correct, the M48 Patton, cat. # 5187.

Picture 3 is a Russian Kliment Voroshilov 1 (KV-1) heavy tank. Cat # 5200.

Picture 4 is an airborne light tank, designation M22, also known as the Locust. A need for an air mobile light infantry piece was discussed, and the M22 Locust was developed. Sports the usual mass-produced 37mm pea shooter. cat # 5170.

Picture 5 is a M36 Jackson tank destroyer, cat # 5167

Picture 6 is just listed as a staff car, cat # 5182.

and picture 7 is the M65 Atomic Cannon, cat # 5189.
