The US frequently had cartoons (sometimes coloured) in their Flight Manuals from 1942 until the mid 1950s. They were used to underline serious points in pilotage.

The Tiger manual has some interesting charts in the back, giving at a glance the kill radii for front and side armour of the most common enemy tanks, and also showing the danger zones from those tanks' guns.

Fairly reassuring--if you're in the Tiger!
