Video: The First Tanks Rolling Through Trafalgar Square
One hundred years ago on September 15, 1916, the Mark I rolled into the Battle of the Somme, ushering in the dawn of a new era in mechanized warfare.
Wargaming is proud to celebrate 100 Years of Tanks with a host of online and offline events in remembrance of the Mark I. To "mark" the occasion, Wargaming partnered with the Tank Museum in Bovington, England, for a unique event in Trafalgar Square in London on the 100th anniversary.
We continue the fun of 100 Years of Tanks in-game, too! Don't miss a taste of WWI combat in the new "Convoy" mode, available for a limited time!
