***Biblical note*** Long before modern tank warfare, people were inventing battle machines. In Scripture, the great King Uzziah is hailed for producing “machines mounted on the walls of Jerusalem, designed by brilliant men to shoot arrows and hurl stones from the towers and the corners of the wall” (2 Chronicles 26:15)
