The tank was originally developed to counter act the alarmingly huge and awful loss of life encountered by trench warfare. The very first initial tank prototype was made at William Foster & Co and was nicknamed Little Willie this design eventually became the Mark 1 Tank. It was a rhomboid shape, twenty-six-foot-long and had the first self-propelled gun. It was able to negotiate difficult terrain, avoid obstacles and get through deep trenches that wheeled vehicles could not. The Tank design vehicle was originally called a “Landship” and the name Tank was kept a closely guarded secret. Tanks have been a vital part of World War history and certainly played a major role in England’s victory in both World Wars.
