Mephisto, the last surviving A7V tank

The A7V Sturmpanzerwagen (Armoured Assault Vehicle) was a tank introduced by the German Empire in 1918, during World War I. One hundred chassis were ordered in early 1917, ten to be finished as fighting vehicles with armored bodies, and the remainder as cargo carriers. The number to be armored was later increased to 20. They were used in action from March to October of that year, and were the only tanks produced by Germany in World War I to be used in combat.[1]

— In-game description

The A7V is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1, serving as a heavy tank. Gameplay of the vehicle first appeared at the official reveal event of the game.[2]

The A7V can hold up to six passengers. The driver can shoot high explosive or canister shot from a 57mm gun, and has the ability to deploy gadgets such as anti-tank mines, smokescreen or gas emitter countermeasures, or medical and ammo crates to support infantry. Passengers may make use of an MG 08 machine gun, 20mm autocannon, or flamethrower depending on loadout.

This very large vehicle has low speed for a ground vehicle, but can still outpace a sprinting soldier. Despite its tracked movement, it can still get stranded on objects that happen to lift it off the ground.
