German Tanks


Armor | Battlefield

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

There are a total of [ 72 ] German Tanks entries in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by initial year of service descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator. Entries also include those utilized by the Nazi regime during World War 2. West German and East German entries of the Cold War period are also considered in this listing as are those systems captured from the enemy and placed back into service during both World Wars.
