a photo of an early Mark IV British tank

A replica early Mark IV British tank built for the film War Horse. The replica has now been acquired by the Tank Museum at Bovington.

The picture displayed is of a German tank called the Sturmpanzerwagen A7V. The Sturmpanzerwagen A7V was the first series of German tanks deployed to the battlefields of World War 1. Like most of the tanks used in World War 1, they were not as successful as the Germans would have liked them to have been. However it was still an advancement of technology that was used in war.

A German Tank of These monsters with a crew of 16 from 6 corps were first encountered by Australian troops at Villers-Bretoneux.
