Main battle tank

A main battle tank, also called a battle tank, is a tank that is used as the most powerful combat vehicle in modern armies. They were made to replace the light, medium and heavy tanks used in World War II with just one tank. Lighter armor made it easier to put bigger guns on tanks without adding weight. Light tanks are still used in places where heavy ones cannot go. MBTs are the main force in ground fights but get help from other combat vehicles and soldiers who travel in infantry combat vehicles. They also get help from observation or attack aircraft.

Tank

A tank is an armoured combat vehicle, typically armed with a large cannon mounted on a turret and a few machine guns. A tank is covered in thick armour to protect it from enemy weapons.

A driver, commander and gunner are always present. There may also be a loader, who handles the ammunition for the main gun so the gunner doesnt have to take eyes off the target.
