A tank is an armored combat vehicle which is meant to hit other ground forces with accurate and deadly bullets. The first tank was manufactured in Britain during the First World War. The English called it tank in order to make the enemies think it was something else than it was. Most tanks drive on Continuous track and have a canon on a gun turret. Continuous track, also called tank tread or caterpillar track, is a system of vehicle propulsion in which a continuous band of treads or track plates is driven by two or more wheels. This band is typically made of modular steel plates in the case of military vehicles and heavy equipment, or synthetic rubber reinforced with steel wires in the case of lighter agricultural or construction vehicles. And a gun turret (or turret) is a location from which weapons can be fired that affords protection, visibility, and some cone of fire. A modern gun turret is generally a weapon mount that houses the crew or mechanism of a projectile-firing weapon and at the same time lets the weapon be aimed and fired in some degree of azimuth and elevation.
Since WWI and until today tanks play a major rule in every combat from helping infantry in the early days and fighting independently like the German lightning war or better known as Blitzkrieg (a method of warfare whereby an attacking force, spearheaded by a dense concentration of armoured and motorized or mechanized infantry formations with close air support, breaks through the opponent’s line of defense by short, fast, powerful attacks and then dislocates the defenders, using speed and surprise to encircle them with the help of air superiority).
The Tank has great Armour, great survival ability, great maneuvering and navigability and an amazing fire rate. That’s why so many people like it despite its size, price and weight.
