A7V Mephisto German Tank WW1


A7V Mephisto at Villers-Bretonneux 1918.  Mephisto was captured by the 15th Australian Brigade and now on display in the Brisbane, Queensland museum.  It is the only surviving original German tank from WW1.  Aberdeen in the USA had one but broke it up for scrap  Eventually 20 A7Vs were built, most lost in combat, broken down, or captured.
