That would be TL 3/7 probably, just note that it's early TL7 and many TL6 items are included but much of TL7 isn't.

The problem is that 'WW2 stuff' is the razor edge between TL 6 and TL 7, so thus 'things which logically seem to go together' such as Panzer IV's and Bazookas are placed in different TLs
Again the Variations within a Tech Level box is your friend.

It wouldn't, and I never said it would. I didn't know when I made that post what historical circumstances which Kalzazz might have been postulating when he asked "What would you think of how to cost 'TL 7, but only through WWII'?" and I was only offering an opinion on what technologies he might mean in that question, since it seemed to be confusing people.
