Since its introduction in the First World War the Tank has been a feature of warfare. It has come a long way from the Mark 1’s from Britain, Hotchkiss from France and the German A7V. Whilst you cannot drive a modern tank you can certainly appreciate how they work with Tank Driving Days from https://www.armourgeddon.co.uk/tank-driving-experience.html. Here are some impressive modern tanks.

  1. Leopard 2A7+. This is a German tank that uses asymmetrical camouflage paint that makes it harder for the human eye to focus on. It is a heavily armoured tank impervious to mines and missiles. It can also clear aware mines and has an impressive 120mm cannon.
  2. Abrams M1A2. This North American tank is the mainstay of the US Army. It has the standard 120mm cannon and various machine guns. It’s most interesting feature is its depleted uranium armour covered by steel. This dense metal is highly effective protection.

  1. T-14 Armata. Tanks have always been an essential part of the Russian Army since the famous T-34 in the Second World War. This tank is their most advanced for years. It has an anti-tank system that launches defences as soon as they are detected. It is also rumoured to have stealth technology, unconfirmed. Not to be out done it has a 125mm cannon that is self loading.
