** ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aelita_%28novel%29 Aelita]]'', by the same author, about heroic MadScientist and Russian Civil War veteran flying to Mars, sparking a proletarian revolution there, and engaging in InterSpeciesRomance. Notable for probably the first application of Relativity Theory in science fiction, use of AncientAstronauts trope, and Atlantis myth.
*** [[spoiler:Romance turns out to be not so interspecies, after all, as the Martians are refugees from {{Atlantis}}]].

* The retro-cult Taerkastens from ''Videogames/UrbanAssault'', are a 26th century version of this. Since the Taerkastens eschew electronics and related tech, they use propeller powered war planes and giant zeppelins when the other factions are using more standard futuristic units. But what they lack in the electronics department, they more than make up for by being on the leading edge of engineering and material design. The Taerkastens have the most heavily armored units in the game.

* ''Ghosts Of Manhattan'' (2010) by George Mann takes place in a world that is moving from SteamPunk (coal driven cars, airships) to this (biplanes with rocket boosters) with hints of RayGunGothic (holographic statues and videophones).

* ''Anime/TheSkyCrawlers'' (2008)(2008) depicts a future in which war has been eliminated, but corporations wage a continual war using clones and WWII-style aircraft for the public's amusement.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' -- Usually classified as Atompunk, but takes place in a retrograde enough world to qualify (a world with atomic power but without the transistor[[note]]Effectively, at least. Transistors ''were'' invented, but only a couple of years before the atomic war, so the overwhelming majority of electronics uses vacuum tubes[[/note]]).

It's actually [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in that the inefficient technology ended up depleting resources faster, thus causing the conflicts that lead to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The Great War]].

* Taylor Anderson's ''Literature/{{Destroyermen}}'' (2008-) series is this mixed with OceanPunk. Its titular heroes are the crew of a UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo destroyer that gets transported via a time-space rift to the Pacific Ocean of an Earth where [[AlternateHistory the dinosaur-killing asteroid never hit and evolution took a different course]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Progear}}'' (2001) has technology somewhere between UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.
* ''VideoGame/IronStorm'' (2002) is set in 1964, in an AlternateHistory setting where UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne never ended. You'll see televisions and helicopters, while fighting in trenches and mud. Also, the weaponry is fictional but credible for alternate technology from the 1950-1960s.
* ''VideoGame/SilentStorm'' (2003) starts as a relatively realistic game focussed on managing a commando team during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (there are an Axis and an Allies campaign), then it [[GenreShift switches to]] a plot involving a Thor Hammer Organisation (THO), NebulousEvilOrganization supplying both sides with {{Energy Weapon}}s and {{Powered Armor}}s, in order to weaken them enough to be able to TakeOverTheWorld by themselves. Its first sequel, the expansion pack ''Silent Storm: Sentinels'', is set not long after the end of the war and features the eponymous Sentinels as a secret multinational (party members from both sides of the previous game are available) organisation struggling against THO, while the high technology is still there.

** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229 Horten Ho 229]], a prototype German bomber built towards the end of World War II, certainly qualifies both in design and function: it's been called the world's first stealth bomber. It even makes a cameo appearance at the beginning of ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder''. Many a gamer can be forgiven for thinking it was just standard DieselPunk hijinks.
