Tanks from the Memories...<br />
<br />
A museum has recreated some of the evolutionary dead ends dreamt up before the modern Tank was finally invented during WW1.<br />
<br />
Accurate models of the weird and wonderful creations that date as far back as 3,000 years ago will form part of a new exhibition at The Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset.<br />
<br />
Tanks as we know them rolled onto the battlefield in 1916 during World War One.<br />
<br />
But among the models recreated is one designed by ancient Assyrians from 9th century BC, which was an early siege vehicle – a battering ram with armour and a protruding weapon.
