1920 Army Tank Chart Sectional View of British Tank First World War

This chart shows the type of tank which performed signal service at the battle of Cambrai in 1917 and despite their initial success, German artillery and infantry defences exposed the frailties of their armour and the vehicles became mostly ineffective after the first day. They were used again with greater success during the final advance of the British armies in World War One.

American M-10 tank destroyer firing near Saint Lo, June 1944. The M10 tank destroyer, formally 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage, M10 was a United States tank destroyer of World War II based on the chassis of the M4 Sherman tank. It was numerically the most important U.S. tank destroyer of World War II and combined a reasonably potent anti-tank weapon with a turreted platform (unlike the previous M3 GMC, whose gun was capable of only limited traverse).
