Who Invented the First Tank?

Joseph Hawker is said to be the father of the modern tank. He received a patent in 1872 for a propelling road locomotive that used endless flat linked pitch or chains which passed around rims to move. The army tank has been in service since 1916 and is still a major part of the armed forces artillery. It originated in the United Kingdom and France. They were developed in Britain for combat during World War I. They were designed to break the deadlock of trench warfare. For more information, look here:
