A century of tanks

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme—a battle that saw the first-ever appearance of tanks on a battlefield. A century ago the legendary Mark I opened a whole new world to us: a world of tanks. The tank has now been rolling for 100 years, and the time has come to thank the 1st steel giant who gave us the golden age of tankbuilding and inspired many generations of engineers to create armored military vehicles. The iconic Mark I returns this September. The first tank will be featured in in-game specials across Wargaming titles: World of Tanks on PC, Xbox and PS4, and World of Tanks Blitz. Get your hands on this famed vehicle and celebrate 100 Years of Tanks on the battlefield! Thank you, Mark I!
