The en:A7V was a tank introduced by Germany in 1918, near the end of World War I. The name is probably derived from the Allgemeines Kriegsdepartement 7 Abteilung Verkehrswesen ("General War Department 7, Branch Transportation"), although some theorize that Hauptmann Joseph Vollmer gave the V to the name. In German the tank was called Sturmpanzer-Kraftwagen (roughly "assault armoured motor vehicle"). There were 100 ordered for the spring of 1918, but only 20 were delivered. They saw action from March to October that year, and were the only tanks produced by Germany in WWI that gained operational status.
