List of Medium Tank

0 comments

Medium tank was a classification of tanks; the medium being intermediate in size and weight and armament between heavy tanks and light tanks.

The medium tank concept has been eclipsed by the main battle tank.

The first tanks to carry the name Medium appeared in the First World War with the British Medium Mark A "Whippet"

The medium tank doctrine came into use in the interwar period. Its existence outlasted the super-heavy tank and heavy tank but eventually was eclipsed by the main battle tank.
