Tanks are not created in order to fight with tanks. They have another problem, and it lies (depending on class) either in a rapid advancing on the enemy's rear to cover the defensive areas, or in the immediate breaking enemy fortifications. In the first case, using light tanks in the second – medium and heavy.

greatest tank battles

The Greatest tank battles in history of this kind of troops has occurred in the XX century, during world war II. Each of these battles was the result of incorrect actions of the General staff, called for urgent action to prevent breaking the front. However, this situation has arisen in the last century repeatedly.

If you evaluate the greatest tank battles in the number of combat vehicles that took part in them, in such sopernitsami you can consider a few historical episodes in which simultaneously fought hundreds of armored vehicles.

The Small North African village of El Alamein became world famous due to the fact that in 1944, in the desert near her six hundred German and Italian tanks met the British, whose number was estimated 1200 machine.

great tank battles

It was on the Western front and in Africa the great tank battles, but they are nowhere near on the scale to the Kursk operation, which in General was a huge counter battle, when each side tried to break the enemy's defenses, breaking it and turning to attack.

In the same year a large-scale counteroffensive of the Americans in the Ardennes was a response to the attempt of the Germans to defeat the allied expeditionary force in Europe, having moved to it SS Panzer division.

The Real picture of this great battle is different from the one with which Soviet moviegoers familiar with the film “Liberation”. The advantages of "thirty" maneuverability was partly offset by the fact that the Germans in those cases, where possible, implemented a major plus the recently introduced them “the Royal tigers” and “Panther”, that is, long range shooting”. Like many other of the great tank battle of Prokhorovka was not a final triumph, for none of the parties, each of which suffered heavy losses. Hundreds of cars were burned, victims of the Germans proved to be less significant, but they become fatal for the Wehrmacht because of a lower capacity for reproduction of the destroyed equipment.

the great tank battle of Prokhorovka

In the second half of the twentieth century, also was the greatest tank battles in which took part from both sides of the armored vehicles was estimated in four-digit numbers. In “the Yom Kippur war” on the position of the Israeli army struck an iron fist Syria. It happened in early October 1973. Arab forces had a seven-fold advantage, their cars were equipped with night-vision goggles, which gave undoubted advantages during battles in the dark, but success was not achieved.

Modern antitank weapons, including ATGM, mines, top gun, assault aircraft, and many more, made the tanks extremely vulnerable. Despite this, production and continuous improvement of armored vehicles is ongoing for other ways to occupy territory simply does not exist. Change tactics to use machines, which are less attacking “in the forehead”. About counter battles have not heard, and, apparently, the greatest tank battle will remain on the pages of textbooks on military history.
