In April of 1918 the Germans launched an assault against the British lines at Amiens. This began the first tank-vs-tank battle in history. Three British Mark IVs faced off against three German A7V tanks. Two of the three Mark IVs were outfitted with only machine guns, leaving only one (equipped with a 6-pounder) to engage with the German tanks. After a lengthy exchange the Mark IV disabled the lead German A7V, which was the abandoned. The remaining German tanks withdrew, and while attempting to pursue them the Mark IV was taken out by artillery. So ended the first tank battle, to which we owe so much.
