Subtitles in our supported languages are also available by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right corner.

The World of Tanks team is announcing the start of a new event on the Global Map - clans will meet again to prove their dominance and demonstrate their battle skills. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the day when tanks first entered battle. Birth of Titans is held in conjunction with that date and will remind us of those chapters of world history.

History

Tanks… This word is already well-known and is always mentioned in conversations about modern armies. Though, 100 years ago this was certainly not the case.

When these steel monsters appeared on the battlefield, they had the same psychological effect as the unstoppable roar of guns. The nature of World War I warfare didn’t anticipate critical changes for the front line, and opposing forces dug into the ground, defending their boundaries for months. A new type of military machines changed everything.

British Mark tanks were the first steel titans, which joined the battle in great numbers. Here’s how their appearance was reported: “German soldiers were deeply shocked when they saw the tanks. Someone in the front trench line cried out “The devil is coming”, and his words spread like a wildfire. The British tankers saw through the vision slits the silhouettes in the grey “feldgrau” uniform running away from their positions. The attempts of some brave men who started firing at the steel monsters were useless.”

Later, many countries saw the true value of the new vehicles’ potential and started developing and implementing their own inventions. All of this resulted in the tank image that we now know - an armored fighter that is able to fulfill the tasks requiring speed, fire power, and protection of a crew.

Entry of such a powerful force changed land-based warfare tactics and strategy forever. Besides this, tanks brought together history and military machines enthusiasts in World of Tanks, which made it possible to experience what it’s like to control heavy but graceful vehicles.
