Most epic tank battle in military history
« on: January 22, 2013, 11:27:17 AM »
Ok here is one.  What would you consider to be the most epic tank battle in military history?  The Battle of Kursk is considered by many to be the largest in WWII.  I have also heard that the Iran Iraq war in the 1980's had some of the largest meeting engagements after WWII.  Any thoughts?

I think its operation goodwood, the british army fielded over 1300 tanks there, and the germans fielding about 400 tanks. I think its more epic than the one in prokhorovka.
