Classic tank videos on YouTube

Tank warfare completely and totally transformed the landscape of modern battlefields forever, from the very first time that “modern” tanks rolled onto the battlefield back in World War I all the way up until today’s incredibly advanced and incredible pieces of modern war fighting technology.

It’s almost impossible to consider now, but when tanks first hit the battlefield throughout Europe in World War I there were still armies throwing horseback cavalry soldiers at these armored vehicles and hoping for the best.

Obviously, as the war went on tactics changed completely, strategies were revolutionized from top to bottom, and different approaches to tank battles were invented and later improved – but the tank was here to stay and remains a big part of modern armies even still today.

It’s tough to find video of the earliest tanks taking to the battlefield (just because camera technology in World War I wasn’t exactly the most advanced thing in the world), but reenactors have driven these vehicles on camera in more modern times and have given us a glimpse at what it would have felt like to see these loud, rumbling, and intimidating vehicles closing down on our position in some open field across Europe.

If you want to get a feel for what it must have been like to witness these kinds of vehicles in battle, check out some of these classic tank videos to give yourself a better idea of everything they brought to the table as well as the scope and scale of these vehicles back then compared to tanks of today.
