What began with the introduction of the tank and airplane as weapons?

Both the tank and the airplane were both first used in a military context during World War I (1914-18). Aircraft combat began shortly after the war started in 1914, but didn't become a serious affair until mid-1915, when effective mountings of forward-firing machine guns enabled the creation of the first "fighter" aircraft.

Likewise, the tank was first introduced at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Thus, no war actually began with the first introduction of tanks and aircraft.

Some people would claim that the concept of mechanized warfare began with introduction of the tank and aircraft. In my opinion, however, this is incorrect, for several reasons:

  1. Mechanized Warfare, while benefiting from aircraft, does not require them. Mechanized warfare is a land-based strategy.
  2. Tanks are NOT sufficient for Mechanized Warfare - a significant motorized (or mechanized) infantry capacity is also required, as is a completely motorized logistical supply chain.
  3. The tactics involved with Mechanized Warfare and the overall strategy to employ those tactics requires certain minimum technological capabilities of equipment, none of which were present during WW1.
  4. The actual theory of mobile armored warfare was not developed until after World War 1, and frankly wasn't even remotely usable in terms of practical application of available machinery and more mature tactics until the early 1930s.

Thus, while having tanks is certainly a prerequisite to developing mechanized warfare strategy, it is not sufficient. And, aircraft are orthogonal to mechanized warfare.

Are all toilet tanks standard or can you replace the original tank mfg Gerber with another mfg American for example?

You should be able to take the old tank off and mesure the distance of the mounting bolt holes and mesure the diamiter of the water hole then go to home depot and mesure some of the tanks they have. I diagree with the previous answer. By the way, it's spelled: measure. Anyway, if you have a 1.6 gallon toilet tank, you should replace it with the same brand. Different manufacturers tanks will NOT work with just any toilet. If you have the old style toilet e.g. 3.5 to 5.0 gallon tank, you would have to find a junk dealer who would have the exact same type of tank.

Who invented the first tank?

Australian civil engineer Lance de Mole designed a "tank" in 1912. It was submitted to the British war office in 1912 but ignored. He was finally recognised and compensated for his work as the inventor and pioneer of the mark 1 tank by the British Royal Commission on Awards to Inventors.

BUT . . .

This is always a difficult question.
De Mole certainly did design a vehicle that closely resembled (and was in some ways superior to) the Tanks that emerged in Britain and France in 1915-16. But there are other claims for, amongst others, France (Capt. Levavasseur), Austria (Gunther Burstyn), and Russia (Vasily Mendeleev) in the decade before WWI. However, none of these was ever built.

After the start of WWI, the British and French both began building Tanks, each unaware of the other's project. In Britain the most significant figures were Sir Eustace Tennyson d'Eyncourt, Major Ernest Swinton, and Willliam Tritton. It was Swinton and Tritton who jointly designed and built the prototype that became the Tank Mark I. In France, the likeliest candidate is Colonel J.B.E. Estienne, who had plans drawn up and persuaded the military to build them. The French and British projects were neck-and-neck, beginning in 1915, although it was the British who first used Tanks on the battlefield, on September 15th, 1916. The French first used their own in April, 1917.

Was the Howitzer an anti-tank gun?

In general, no. Most howitzers had a short barrel and light powder charge, mainly to make them light and manoeverable, such as for "mountain guns". They certainly weren't designed as anti-tank weapons but a hit from a howitzer round might disable a tank.

In today's modern militaries, all field guns are now howitzers (the primary definition of a "howitzer" vs a normal gun is that a howitzer is capable of elevation about 45 degrees from horizontal). While their primary mission is long-range indirect fire, they all have direct-fire capability. They also come with a wide variety of ammunition. While they don't have the APFSDS-style kinetic penetrator typical of direct-fire guns, they do have both a variety of HEAT and HESH rounds that can be very effective, plus they are capable of firing a number of different guided weapons.

So, the answer is: YES, the modern howitzer definitely has a significant anti-tank capability, though that is not their primary mission. When used in the anti-tank role, it is almost always via indirect fire dropping a variety of specialty rounds on the tops of tanks a considerable distance away. Using a howitzer in a direct-fire anti-tank role is generally a sign that something has gone seriously wrong with the tactical situation.

What is the closest Spanish translation of the word mark in the sense of Mark-4 Tank?

"Mark" in this case means "model number" -- a particular design or make of an item. For example, Steve Jobs could have named a product "iPhone Mark 3". (And, I'm not sure where the word usage came from, although it's an interesting question).

What is the best tank Challenger 2 or Abrams M1A2?

Opinions will always vary, and are dependent upon the test conditions provided.

Over 10k Abrams have been built,and over 8k currently serve with the USMC and US Army.

Only 450 Challenger 2 tanks are in service with the British Army.

The M1 has the best combat record of any modern main battle tank,in the World today.Thats a true story.M1s have been lost,but M1s have made scrap yards out of other nations tanks.Sure,this was against inferior tanks,but it still got the job done,and a M1 has never been destroyed by another tank.Insurgants and road sides bombs have destroyed M1s,though.

How long of a shower would it take to drain a new 50-gallon electric tank?

Assuming a 50\50 mix of hot and cold, approximately 15 minutes.

It depends on the flow rate of your shower head and the ratio of hot to cold.

If the flow rate equals f in gallons per minute

And the ratio of hot to cold is r

t = (50 / r + 50) / f

In what war battle were tanks used for the first time?

Tanks were first used in combat during the First World War at the battle of the Somme, although the British Mark I tanks which participated were still experimental at the time.

armored vehicles were used before the somme. trucks with armour welded to them were used where the terrain would permit.

Although tanks were first used at the battle of the Somme, the first time they were used to gain a serious victory was at Cambrai, where British Mark IV tanks equipped with gap crossing bridges manages to smash the German front to pieces along a six-mile line.

One of the reasons the Germans lost WW1 was that they were reluctant to make their own tanks and when they did it was too late. At the end of the war, the British and French had over 6,000 tanks and the Germans had only 20!

This was all to change in the second world war when the British still used obselete tanks with guns that required them to get much closer to the German tanks than their German counterparts, which could simply fire at them while they closed in. It was not until tanks like the Sherman (Americans) and the T-34 (Russians) were used that the Allies armour got strong enough to rival the Germans.

How much will gas cost if you travel 1000 miles?

It depends on your vehicle's gas mileage and the current price of gas.

Say you have a 10 gallon gas tank and get 22 miles per gallon.

You have 220 miles to the tank.

1000 miles to travel, and an average $2.50 per gallon of gas

1000 miles / 220 miles = 4.55 tanks of gas

4.55 tanks of gas * 10 gallon gas tank = 45.5 gallons

45.5 gallons * $2.50 per gallon of gas = $113.64

Put in your own values for price and mileage to figure it out for your own car.
