For as long as there have been battles fought on land, the military vehicle and artillery piece have been mainstays.

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.
