Realistic tanks

This post is obviously linked to this previous one published about one week ago.On 15 September 1916, Italian artist Achille Beltrame imagined how tanks looked like. One year later (to be more precise on 2 December 1917), with this new drawing, it’s clear that he was able to study some photographs, as the drawing is more realistic. And to make my friend Mauro happy: the German soldiers wear Stahlhelm helmets for once!

According to the author of the drawing, the scene took place in Picardy during a recent offensive.
