TANKS

“One Hundred Years of Armored Warfare”

  

   

The theme for Historicon 2017 is the Tank (100 years of armored warfare). The tank was designed to place fear into the men opposing it and to break the stalemate of trench warfare during World War I. Years later with ever improving designs and tactics it became a weapon that lead the terrifying Blitzkrieg in the early days of World War II. During World War II the tank continued to evolve into one of the Wars most feared weapons. The terror causing Tiger Tank to name just one. The Tank became larger, mounted heaver armament, increased its speed and the armor protection increased. Tanks in the Post World War II years have improved and became the spear tip of Cold War era. Today they are still being used with Blitzkrieg type tactics as seen in the assault into Iraq and is being used in other Middle East conflicts. There is no telling what the next generations of Tanks will look like and how they will be armed and armored.
