I have a book written by Edward Hassett on the 701st Tank Battalion. No where in this does it mention the 8th armored division. The only mentions are 10th Armored Group which they began with but left them in Belgium and joined the 102nd Infantry. Also mentioned were attachments to the 75th Infantry and 94th Infantry.
They probably called Ankylosaurus the "armored tank" because it was so densely covered in bony armor plates on its head, neck, back, sides, and tail, just like a tank is armored to protect it from gunshots. Some other things Ankylosaurus shares with tanks are that it was bulky and hard to flip, and they were both well armed: a tank has guns, and an Ankylosaurus has a lethal tail club.
All tanks are armored; if they weren't armored they would be called self propelled guns (because they have a cannon mounted on them). It they were armored, but didn't have a gun (cannon) it would be called an armored personnel carrier. Therefore, since it's got armor & a gun, it's called a tank.

The US Armored Division was a division that was organized to be a mobile unit that used tanks. The US Army did not have armored divisions when Germany began its "blitzkrieg" attacks across Europe. The US have very few good tanks. The US Army organized the Division to have 2 Armored Regiments and 1 Armored-infantry (or mobile infantry) Regiment. Later, this organization was found to be too bulky. Also, they saw the need to have smaller mobile armored units to support the infantry advance- simliar to German panzer-grenadier regiments. US Infantry Divisions did not have any armored units as part of their organization. However, they eventually had 1 Tank Destroyer Battalion and 1 Anti-Tank Battalion or more assigned to them for support.
