The A7V entered service with the German Army in 1918. 100 had been ordered but only 20 were delivered before the war ended.
The A7V was designed in response to the British Tank Mk I but using a vastly different concept which was faster but much poorer cross-country.
There was a crew of up to 17 soldiers. The A7V weighed 33 tons and was armed with 1 x 57mm cannon and 6 x 7.92mm machine guns.
