Tanks – Look inside Cross-Sections - 1996 - See inside 13 fascinating Armored Vehicles

In the midst of the devastating World War I - Battle of the Somme, at dawn on September 15, 1916. the British Army launched an attack on the German front line around the French town of Flers. The German soldiers were amazed as vehicles unlike anything ever seen charged forward. The very first tanks, the ancestors of today's deadly fighting machines, had entered service.

During World War I the enemies faced each other in miles of trenches protected by barbed wire. British engineers wanted to develop a vehicle that could break through the wire and cross the trenches. At first the new vehicle's purpose was kept so secret that the people building it thought they were building a water carrier, which is how the name "Tank" came about.
