Heavy Tank

A heavy tank was a class of tank that generally provided better armor protection as well as equal or greater firepower than tanks of lighter classes, often at the cost of mobility, maneuverability, and, particularly, expense. The origins of the class date to World War I and the first tanks; designed to operate in close concert with the infantry and facing both artillery and the first dedicated anti-tank guns, early tanks had to have enough armor to allow them to survive in no man's land. As the lighter tanks were introduced, the larger designs became known as heavies. A similar 'breakthrough' role remained in World War II. As tank-v-tank combat became more common, heavy tanks mounted very powerful anti-tank guns. By the end of the war, they were used both for dealing with heavy fortifications as well as antitank work. They were also known as breakthrough tanks, indicating their purpose of spearheading the attack. They were usually organized into specialized heavy tank units. The emergence of the main battle tank spelled the end of the heavy tank as a separate class, although a number of post-war examples were produced. These were generally gone by the 1960s.
