* ''Film/PacificRim'': Gipsy Danger is a severely outdated Mk 3, which has to be taken out because they only had four mecha left to fight the {{Kaiju}}. There's an even ''more'' outdated Jaeger present in the form of the Cherno Alpha, a Mk 1 Jaeger, but [[spoiler:that one gets ripped to shreds in its onscreen battle, killing the pilots]]. Gipsy's outdated status does give it an advantage over the newer Jaegers when Leatherback deploys its EMP. Its the only "analog" Jaeger and is therefore unaffected by the EMP, making it definitely qualify for this trope. Though, while Gipsy is called out as being outdated in the movie, she's really not all that old. Apart from Striker Eureka, there's only one "series" of Jaegar newer than Gipsy. It's just that in the LensmanArmsRace between the Kaiju and humans, Jaegers become obsolete ''fast''. She's also been upgraded from her original Mk 3 specifications by the main part of the movie. Cherno Alpha, now, is a museum piece, but it probably doesn't quite qualify for this trope since it's never been put into storage; it's been fighting all along.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' one of the early missions involves getting weapons to restock after a police raid. The first weapons dealer the gang works with has weapons so old that CJ comments on museums having newer firearms.
** Funny enough, the texture and model of the pistol comes from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII''. A development oversight yes, but still rather interesting that the old texture and model are still being used.

* When the railways on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England, had to be electrified, it was discovered that the tunnels and bridges were too low for conventional electric trains. Fortunately, it just happened that the LondonUnderground was disposing of some of its older trains, and ever since then they've used retired Tube trains. The ones currently in service were built in 1938.

** The Canadian Army's sidearm is the Browning Hi-Power, still a commonly available pistol. The Army's guns, however, were models built under licence by Inglis Canada in ''1944''.

*** And, as with London, [[https://www.autos.ca/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=fvs07aspafma2qupb8docpbvj1&topic=85750.msg934364#msg934364 bendy buses sometimes prove less than satisfactory]].

** Bonus points go to ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'', which features actual "Little Ships" from the real Dunkirk evacuation.


Added DiffLines:

** Slightly averted in that Sir Handel and Peter Sam were museum pieces themselves; Skarloey was only sidelined because of mechanical issues.

* Reinhardt of ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' still goes into battle with his Crusader PoweredArmor. In the games timeline, the suit is a little over 40 years old, and starting to show its age. Much like it's [[DentedIron wielder.]]

* ''Series/TheOrville''. A suspicious gadget is found embedded in the machinery of the ship's engines. It is resistant to scanners and seems to be shielded against energy weapons. But the engineer has an antique electric drill he had been given as a graduation present...

* In the ''Literature/ManKzinWars'' novel ''Destiny's Forge'', the [[ProudWarriorRace kzinti]] have a form of internal warfare called ''skalazaal'' that [[HouseRules requires all weapons used to be muscle-powered]]. When ''skalazaal'' is declared against the ruling clan, rendering their fancy lasers and railguns useless, Tskombe at one point spots their soldiers actually hauling an old trophy catapult out of the [[TrophyRoom Hall of Victory]] to use against the invaders.
