The first modern tank engagement took place in the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Known as the 'Mark I', the vehicles that participated in that iconic battle have come to be recognised as the oldest of its kind.
With the celebration of the '100 Years of Tanks' anniversary, join Richard 'The Challenger' Cutland and Nicholas 'Chieftain' Moran in a brand-new VR experience as they explore the oldest members of the collection at The Tank Museum at Bovington, UK, including the world's last surviving Mark I tank.
This VR 360-degree video is enhanced using in-game VR scenes of the Mark I in World of Tanks. This is the first time WG is releasing a video of their groundbreaking in-game VR video playback as well, putting any viewer in observer mode, whether they have the game installed or not.
