See Mephisto, the rarest tank in the world, and learn about its significance in the battles of WWI. To commemorate the WWI centenary, the Australian War Memorial has collaborated with the Queensland Museum to display Mephisto outside Brisbane for the first time since it was transported from Europe after the end of the WWI.

Tanks were one of the First World War's major technological innovations. They were first developed by the British, and were later taken up by France. The Germans began developing their own tanks after the British first deployed theirs during the battle of the Somme in 1916.
