World War 1 Tanks (1914-1918)

World War 1 saw the origins of the 'Landship', which became the 'tank' as we know it today - with much thanks to British engineering out of Bovington, England.

OVERVIEW



World War 1 marked the first-use of the tank as a combat system, replacing cavalry in the role of punching through the enemy's defenses. Trench warfare and machine gun fire necessitated this battlefield evolution. The first tank-versus-tank battle occurred between the British and Germans but is largely viewed as inconclusive as neither side could claim a clear victory.

There are a total of 26 World War 1 Tanks (1914-1918) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator.
