Diecast Metal Tanks and Military Armor Models
Discounts on Tank Models! The tank is an all terrain AFV designed primarily to engage enemy forces by the use of direct fire in the frontal assault role. Though several configurations have been tried particularly in the early experimental days of tank development, a standard, mature design configuration has since emerged to a generally accepted pattern. This features a main artillery gun mounted in a fully rotating turret atop a tracked automotive hull with various additional machine guns throughout. Philosophically, the tank is, by its very nature, a purely offensive weapon. Being a protective encasement with at least one gun position, the tank is essentially a pill box or small fortress (though these are static fortifications of a purely defensive nature) that can move toward the enemy - hence its offensive utility.
