A very well known army vehicle. The tank saw its first action in the trenches of WWI. The Germans in WWII used their tanks effectively on all their fronts (Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North Africa, Balkans). The Germans used the tank to take over all of Europe, specially Erwin Rommel, who used his tanks wisely in North Africa. The Germans should be known as the fathers of tank warfare. After WWII, tank technology improved, with more armor, radar, and more firepower. The American Armies in Iraq used tanks to decimate columns of Iraqi armor and infantry. Today, tanks are still in army service, and the Russians also use them to crush civilian unrest. The tank is giant leap in ground warfare.
Tanks are versatile vehicles and they carry devastating firepower.

Noun: A player-character, typically in a MMORPG, that is able to occupy an agressor and take the brunt of the aggressor's attacks while the other players deal damage, heal, or perform some other action. The "tank" can survive longer while taking damage than the other characters. Typically, the tank has higher hitpoints (health) and a higher armor rating than the other characters. Less commonly, a character with a lower armor rating can perform the actions of the tank by using avoidance abilities. Ultimately, the tank needs to be able to occupy the agressor without dying. The method employed, whether avoidance or absorption, does not matter, as long as the tank can mitigate damage in some way.

Verb: To "tank", or "tanking", would be the action of performing the duties of the tank as described above.

2.V. The warrior is tanking the mob right now.
