    Like it says in the title. If you feel like adding accompanying information, so much the better.

    Here are a few of mine:

    The A39 Tortoise Heavy Assault Tank


    the pic doesn't really show how big it is in real life... at a lean 78 long tons it's a monster.

    Tiger 2:


    the less-manufactured follow up to the Tiger 1. This one is the only running one the world, from France.

    The M4 Sherman


    the American classic, made in a ton of variants. despite its dinky appearance these guys are 9ft tall.

    OK, my lunch break is over, more to follow...

    Nr.2 K2 Black Panther (South Korea)

    Currently the Black Panther is one of the most advanced main battle tanks in the world, outclassing anything North Korea or China have. Furthermore, it is the most expensive main battle tank to date.

    This tank uses composite armor of undisclosed type and explosive reactive armor modules. It is claimed that front armor withstands direct hits from 120 mm tank rounds, fired from L55 guns. It's protection is broadly similar to the M1A2 Abrams, considering that the K2 is much lighter. The Black Panther tank is also completed with an active protection system and countermeasures system, that further increase its survivability.

    This new South Korean tank is armed with the latest German 120 mm/L55 gun, similar to that used on the German Leopard 2A6 and 2A7. This tank has a very advanced fire control system which can spot, track and fire automatically at visible vehicle-size targets, and even low-flying helicopters, without needing any input from a human operator. The K2 also uses advanced munitions.

    The Black Panther is fitted with a powerful diesel engine. It is fast and has a state-of-the-art hydropneumatic suspension.

    Production contract for the first 100 K2 tanks was signed in 2014. So it should enter service with the South Korean Army soon.

    Much like any sane tank fighter in WWII, I'd much prefer to be in a Tiger. Don't get me wrong, The Sherman won but it was from numbers.

    For sure. The Firefly variant with the 17-pounder gun apparently packed a punch tho!

    T-34 is interesting because when it arrived, it outclassed more or less everything. But within a short time, German heavies were way overpowered in a 1 on 1. Then again, the Soviets used a LOT of tanks!

  16. The T-28 looks pretty awesome to me, to be honest. If we're allowed to go with fictional stuff, I've always loved the mammoth tank from RA1

    My father-in-law, RIP, fought his way into Berlin in a T-34. The block to block, floor to floor fighting left it's mark on him, although the Ghetto that he was freed from by the Red Army was no picnic either. He loved the Willys Jeep too.

    Given air power and those nasty depleted uranium arms are tanks of any real use except that we make and sell a load of them? On infantry armor is killer but in the integrated battlefield of today I wouldn't want to be in one.
