Tanks of the Russian Empire

Posted on January 27, 2013 by team

The Russian Empire was the first country in the world which officially accepted armoured cars for service. It happened in 1908  when the Russian army received ten armoured cars built by the French company Charron, Girardot et Voigt designed under the project of a Russian officer M. Nakashidze.

    You are incorrect. The French were the first to put armored cars into service with the Charron-Girardot-Voigt 1902. The first country to use them in wartime were the Italians in 1911. Also, the halftrack was based on the Lombard Steam Log hauler which was a halftrack. They were built “serially” from 1899 to 1917.

    This post has only one tank and thats allready soviet, not Russian Empire era. Though sometimes half-track vechiles were called tanks by russians because of the tank-like tracks. But real Russian Empire tank projects have been left out.
