This should be fun. What is your favorite tank, and why? Can be from any era.

Mine is the Panzer II. The first model tank I ever built was this guy;



1/72 Matchbox series. Old old kits. I think they were re-released by Revell now. But anyways these kits were great as they came with a little diorama stand, and sometimes a couple of figures. In this case, it came with a guy with a submachine gun and another throwing a grenade, and what was left of a house or something.



It just blew me away. I would go on to build dozens of these kinds of kits, but the Panzer II always stuck with me. I built it many times. I wish there had been more variants of it. I do prefer to favor tanks that have a lot of variants, so a tank like the Panzer IV is cool too.

While I do think they are cool, I tend to not prefer the typical bad-ass massive tanks of the day. I also like the Panzer I for its variants, like the box commander version. Love that guy.

I also like the WWII Italian tanks too, even though most weren't very good. There is just something about them. Especially the Semovente da 75.



Also love the US Chaffee. Not too big, not too small. Which I have seen in person and climbed all over. For a light tank, it sure is huge.

I like modern tanks too. The Germans make some cool looking stuff. And of course I like the Abrams and Merkava. But little old Panzer II is my fav.

Somewhere in southern England.

For me there is one tank above all others that most perfectly embodies the mental gestalt of TANK.

It’s a slab-sided moving mountain of steel, with a huge gun, brutal wide tracks and massive engine exhausts. Arguably an old-fashioned kind of design even when it was launched, its sheer over-engineered strength and power still made it the bete noire of Allied tankers in WW2.

It is the Tiger Tank.

I think she is awesome too. I heard they were upgrading them with a bunch of new sensors and so on.

I am not sure there is anything to worry about though. No one has a better all-around tank. As good as the Merkava is, its basically a slow moving bunker located in a really small country. You couldn't see it do many of the things that the Abrams can.

Although it does have a mortar, which is cool. But the co-axial mg sits on the barrel of the main gun last I checked. Would hate to be the guy who has to go out and reload it.

I know very little about functionality, so I'm going by looks. I would have to say the Merkava, especially the Mk IV. The flattened turret is very futuristic and cool looking. It looks like it comes from a near-future RTS.

I hope at some point this expands into armored vehicles because I have some thoughts on the Piranha.

Yeah go for it. I should have been a little more general and said Armored Vehicles... I love WWII german armored cars too. Just about all of them. But I like the British ones too, like the Humber II.

Somewhere... over the rainbow

I have always been a huge fan of the KV (Kliment Voroshilov) series of tanks. Particularly the KV-1 and KV-2.


Why I love it so much is that at the time it entered service with the Soviet army it was a total monster unlike any tank in service in the rest of world. In the beginning of the war, almost no weapons existed that could penetrate its armour (they could only be taken out by artillery fired from almost point-blank range). However, it was an unreliable beast and the rapid German advance meant that many KV-tanks broke down and had to be abandoned without being able to take part in the fighting. But on the occasions were units of KV-tanks did make it to the fight, they wreaked a lot of havoc. There is plenty of epic stories from the early war about German units having to pull of all kinds of crazy, desperate stunts in an attempt to take one of these beasts down or single KV-tanks preventing entire German units from advancing for hours or even days (usually until the tank ran out of ammo).
The KV tank also directly inspired the German Tiger tank and the later Soviet IS series of tanks.

One hundred of our tanks, about a third of them Panzer IV, occupied their positions against a counter-strike. Part of our forces met the enemy frontally, but most of them were on their flanks. They hit the steel monsters from the three sides, but the attempts to destroy them were unsuccessful. By the contrary, it was our tanks which were knocked out. After a long struggle with the Soviet giants, the German armoured units began to withdraw trying to avoid the annihilation.


One of the KVs got close to a panzer who was stuck in a muddy brook. Without hesitation, the black monster just rolled over it, crushing it completely.

Then a German 105 mm howitzer arrived. Its commander, seeing the mass of enemy tanks, ordered continuous firing, but without causing any damage. One of the KVs got close, to within 100m of the howitzer, which fired again, and its shell hit the tank full on. The tank stopped as if hit by lightning. “We made it!” thought the gunners. “Yes, we made it!!!”, shouted the commander of the position.

But the expresson in their faces suddenly changed when one of them shouted: “It’s moving again!!”. There was no doubt – the shiny caterpillar moved up to the howitzer and crushed it like a toy, then kept on moving as if nothing had happened.

I also really like the Israeli Merkava tank. It just looks really cool. I also like the Armata because of how advanced it is with all the crazy technological gadgets it has. It is a rather ugly tank though.

Waffentrager a smart way to mechanize 88mm guns, is easier than expensive self-propelled guns like Ferdinand/JadgTiger


Best of everything developed by WW2 Soviet tank designers.


I'll like it, when it will be equipped with 152mm gun. Finally, abandoned projects like object 195 will be resurrected.

Hmm, for it's time and way it was used, I would have to go with T-34. Every time someone waxes on about the German tanks at the time, I have to just point to these guys. So simple a farmer could drive it, but capable of punching holes in, and deflecting shots from, much bigger (and more costly) German tanks.

In terms of modern tanks, the aging Abrams is still impressive. The Merkava is a different beast and doesn't do what an Abrams does, but does what it needs to very well.

Yeah but has cool ability thanks to upfront engines. They can carry troops.

They even have a model APC built from thr tank minus turret, even heavier armour and rear access.

Aye, one KV tank dug in held up multiple Germans for hours on end, the massively slab like armour took dozens of shells before it was finaly knocked out. Was peppered with many many smaller AP rounds that just dented thr turret.

Sorry I missed this. Yeah I heard about this, but when they configure the tank like this, I think they have to remove some of the stuff inside, like the ammo for the main gun. Which is fine if you are driving around the West Bank. But I also heard they were able to blow one up that was carrying troops (as rare as that has been), so I am not sure they are quick to do that anymore. There was a time when it was really tough to blow a Merkava up.

Speaking of blowing up. I was reading up on the Leopard tank today, and was surprised to read a bunch of Turkish ones have been lost to ISIS. Like blown up. I know the turks prob arent as well trained as the Germans, but they are getting destroyed with anti-tank weapons. For some reason I thought that tank would be harder to kill.

Some years ago, I met a guy who was a tank commander for the Army and was stationed in Europe, and found out I liked tanks. He lent me a book I wish I could remember more details on, because I would love to buy it, but it was about an US engineer who's job it was to repair US tanks during WWII. It is astonishing to which the speed they could take a blown up Sherman, bring it back to the repair areas, patch it up and make it look good as new (new crews DID NOT WANT tanks that other crews had died in), and pass it on to a new crew. Most of the time you could even find the piece from the hull that the incoming round would knock out, and weld it back into place! And that is all this guy did, and wrote an amazing book about it. But the process of going out and retrieving tanks, the clean up, bodies and all that, pretty terrible stuff. My grandfather was a Sherman tank commander in WWII, and his stories were really insightful too. He told me several stories that blew me away, but one in particular was how if intelligence knew of at least one Tiger out on the front, it really effected morale. They had to bring in a Firefly to blow up one in front of everyone to try to bring their spirits up, but it didn't help a great deal.

He also described receiving rounds that we not strong enough to penetrate the tank, but about to kick up mud and block the view ports, so in those times they would prefer the rounds hit the tank regardless of the sound and stress it caused.

He also described how dirty they were, and when a serious round hit and didn't penetrate, it would kick up a lot of dust. I never imagined that.

Hate to be an American fan boy but the Abrams tank is my favorite. It's hard not to love it. Was king for so long and performed for an incredibly long time and still does. You just don't need to ever make a "better" tank than this.

Next favorite is probably the tiger 1. Probably one of the most impressive weapons of war ever produced for it's time.

I think they have odd loss but majority of time impacts ha e basically bounced off or the tanks been quickly recovered and repaired. The bunkers on tracks have kept there crews alive which is there main job at end of day. They still have a solid reputation for taking hits and carrying on.

They designed things like the engine to be easy to replace with a crane and a decent tool kit.

There ideal for where they are. They too slow for US etc. But they need no air mobility etx so they can be so armoured.

That sounds a grim job in the extreme... Hose the tank out of whatever left after a 88mm hit... Repaint em and make it look like no one died.

I knew they salvaged old tanks for spares and such, but not destroyed back into action.

A firefly was only gun they had for abit that could challenge a big cat at longer ranges. There crews and tanks where also a primerry target for German guns. They tried to kill thr firefly first. Allied soldiers did at times have events of classing some others as tigers in chaos of war though. The Panther was possibly more deadly as more reliable and still had the lethal 88mm.

My grandfather was on a diffrent tank but once that measured calibre in inches not mm, BB in the RN, kGV Class.

Either the Merkava Tankbulance or the Stridsvagn 103 Turretless Tank (due to some weird wording, it is technically a tank despite other vehicles of it's type would normally be classified as self propelled guns).
