History of Tanks


Danny Martinez, Contributor


The very first tank was invented in 1915 and began to be used in World War I. A tank is a vehicle, that is protected with thick armor. It has a large gun and is mobile, so that it can be used in front-line battles. The large gun, called the Commander’s MG, can move around in different directions.

The crew is protected by the armor and there are two large tracks that move the vehicle to move to where it is needed such as rough terrains. When tanks were first invented they were big, bulky, and moved slowly. They often got stuck in sand or muddy areas. The tanks used in World War 2 were better because they were able to move quicker, more protective armor and guns were more powerful.
