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.
