Tank

armoured fighting vehicle intended as a primary offensive weapon in front-line ground combat

A tank is an armored fighting vehicle intended as a primary offensive weapon in front-line ground combat. Tank designs are a balance of heavy firepower, strong armor, and good battlefield mobility provided by tracks and a powerful engine; usually their main armament is mounted in a turret. They are a mainstay of modern 20th and 21st century ground forces and a key part of combined arms combat.

If the tanks succeed, then victory follows. ~ Heinz Guderian
Type 90 MBT of the Japan Ground Self-Defence Force firing during the Fuji Firepower Review 2009
