About This Quiz

They're big, burly, and brutal ... they're tanks!

There were several early tank-like designs and prototypes long before the 20th century; going as far back as Leonardo da Vinci and his illustrations and inventions. However, it wasn't until the First World War that serious thought had to be given to mass producing armored fighting vehicles. This need for the tank arose due to the deadlock of trench warfare in the First World War.  Since tanks have been around for over a hundred years now, that means that there is a wide array of them to choose from for this quiz. We've narrowed the selection for this quiz down to 40 of the most iconic metal monsters from the First World War, the Second World War and modern times!

The Russians, the French, the British, the Germans and the Americans all developed and made use of armored fighting vehicles to some extent during the First World War. By the time the Second World War rolled around, tanks and other armored vehicles were by far some of the most important military implements on the ground; and their importance has remained consistent to this day! So get ready, aim, and fire your answers to these questions now!
