Learn More About The Tank Drawing

The tank is a heavily armoured military combat vehicle that crawls along on tracks. The armor protects the soldiers inside.

The chain-like tracks allow it to travel over difficult terrain. Tanks are often heavily armed with very large guns.

The predecessors of the tank date to ancient times, when armies employed armored vehicles such as chariots, siege towers, or battering rams.

The first modern tank was built in the year 1900 using a steam traction engine. Tanks played a large role in the trench warfare of World War I, and in countless conflicts since.
