World War 2 went on to set the new standard in combat tank design, resulting in the Main Battle Tank seen at war's end in 1945.
Victory in the ground war of World War 2 could be decided through various means but it was the tank that ultimately took center stage. The combat system evolved much from its infancy witnessed during World War 1 (1914-1918) and grew to become a focal point of the many offensives had in the Second Grand War - spanning from Europe to the Pacific and all places in between. The conflict delivered into armored warfare history such classics as the German 'Panther' and 'Tiger' types, the Soviet T-34, the British 'Churchill' and the American 'Sherman'. Before the end, the Allies would be crowned the victors thanks largely to numerical superiority, setting the groundwork for a whole new generation of tanks to come in the Cold War years (1947-1991).
