    Heavy Combat Tanks throughout Military History

    Prior to the arrival of the modern Main Battle Tank, the "Heavy Tank" was the pinnacle of armored warfare design incorporating stout armor protection and powerful main armament.





    For a time, the Heavy Tank was the pinnacle in armor design for many of the leading military powers. It saw its peak usage during World War 2 though development of such types continued into the late-1950s. Those managing to reach operational-level status by then were ultimately retired during the 1990s for good. The Heavy Tank was replaced in frontline service by the arrival of the Main Battle Tank (MBT).
