A military documentary showcasing military technology advances through the ages.
The idea of tanks began as an extension of armoury, with technicians seeing the need for soldiers to traverse the battlefield while being fully protected from enemy fire. As the type of weaponry used in warfare increased in size and calibre, the type of armour required became too heavy and cumbersome, and so the advent of the tank was welcomed by armies worldwide.
