    Combat Tanks of German Military History

    While largely overlooking the tank in World War 1, the Germans have not repeated that mistake since.





    There are a total of (63) Combat Tanks of German Military History in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by initial year of service descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin.


    West German and East German entries of the Cold War years are also considered in this listing as are those systems captured from the enemy and placed back into service during both World Wars.



    Please wait while all 63 records are loaded into this space.
