Land warfare still dominates the battlefield today and its components are critical keys to securing the victory on the ground.

The combat 'tank' came into its own during World War 1, designed to navigate the miles of trenches and obstacles along the Western Front. The first tank-versus-tank battle took place during the war between the British and Germans with rather anticlimactic results. As experience began to dictate function, the tank later became the critical spearhead of Allied offensives in breaking down enemy defenses - evolving into the showcase piece for land campaigns today. Today the Main Battle Tank (MBT) remains the culmination of work that began with the ungainly British, French and German developments seen in the Great War - the machines combining the perfect measure of crew protection and firepower to remain key components to any operation. Our Land Systems section currently boasts over 1,200 individual entries covering battle tanks, tracked and wheeled armored fighting vehicles and artillery systems from around the world. That's information detailing the early days of armored warfare to those designs that have yet to be witnessed on a future battlefield - enough reading to keep you busy for some time!
