The A7V was Germany’s response to British tanks, which had first appeared on the Western Front in September 1916. Twenty were built and saw service between March and October 1918.

The A7V, also known as the Allgemeines Kriegsdepartement, Abteilung (English: General War Department, Section 7, Transport), was the first German Tank, made by the German empire in 1918. It was a response to the Mark 1, witch was made by the British in 1916 and used at the Battle of the Somme. It was used in the later part of World War 1, and the German Revolution of 1918. The Tank also was adapted into the A7V-U, and the 7V Flakpanzer[1]
