During the Second World War the United States experienced a revolution in tank design and production. As Hitler's army swept through Europe, America transformed itself from an isolationist backwater to an industrial giant.
The Churchill tank, designed and developed by Vauxhall Co., plays an important role in World War II.
The T34 medium tank was one of the technological wonders of the Second World War. Designed built and used in Russia the T34 stunned the invading German army and prevented it from seizing Moscow. The Third Reich even tried to clone the T34, but its attempts never challenged the Soviet colossus.
The enduring images of the panzer formation of World War II and the infamous battle tanks. The legendary panthers and tigers which have become synonymous with the Wehrmacht. Undoubtedly well known they were by no means the most numerous fighting vehicles.
All though it seems common place in the army's of today, the tank is a surprisingly new invention. Tanks first saw action less than a century ago in the first world war. The Tiger was the most complete fighting machine of WWII.
Necessity is the mother of invention. One successful new breed born out of desperation of the demands of the Russian front, were the self propelled artillery vehicles, which were rushed into production from war ravaged German factories, to shore up the defensive of that terrible conflict.
