Do you like tanks? Do you like destruction? If so then keep on reading cause I will tell you so many facts about tanks it will blow up your head! I will tell you things about the tanks weapons, what a tank is, tanks movement, and much, much, much, more. If you donŐt then go back to your boring old dumb life.
What is a Tank?
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanks, a tank is a heavily armored vehicle that performs about all tasks of primary units and is good in combat. So if you ask me it sounds like a pretty good weapon of destruction.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanks, a tank's main gun usually shoots guided missiles or high explosive anti-tank rounds.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tanks, most tanks still retain the capability to fire indirectly (like artillery). There is a wide-held belief that the M1 Abrams cannot but it is able. Most tanks therefore have a similar range as artillery probably somewhere in the 15 km range. (I am estimating this lower than regular artillery, I cannot find indirect fire stats anywhere on line). This is very rare however.
The tanks history
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tanks, and ship development, originally conducted by the Royal Navy under the auspices of the Land ships Committee, was sponsored by the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, and proceeded through a number of prototypes, importantly among them the Little Willie, designed by William Ashbee Tritton and Walter Gordon Wilson, as the first-ever completed tracked tank prototype vehicle, culminating in the Mark I tank prototype, that was built in world war 1, named Mother.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tanks, the Jay slaw is an ignoramus vehicle can move at a high speed of over 200 mph on dessert sand! It has a 478 mm cannon for its main gun and weights more than a thousand tons. That's amazing!!!
So now you tank lovers that are reading this you know probably twice as much about tanks just from reading my awesome report. Thanks for coming and reading it. Bye bye for now.
