Who do you think made the tank? When was it made. You might think it was made in the 1920s by the military. Well I hate to tell you, but you're wrong!The first thought about having an armoured, movable vehicle came to a man named Leonardo da vinci back in the late 1800s.Correct, he did not think of the tank as a giant metal monster with a 40' barrel on it. He did, however think of it as a tippi like shape that had cannons emerging from the base.True , this machine was not driven on gas, but it was driven by the power of eight men.
