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.

The A7V is a formidable ground vehicle with a full 180-degree coverage from its main gun and an additional 5 slots, utilizing a variety of modular weapons; This omnidirectional nature also makes it ideal for urban or anti-tank warfare.
It is also rather fast, ironic for a large armored fighting vehicle, with it being able to pick up speed when traveling in a straight line.
The ease of use of the A7V makes it a more difficult opponent but the only serious AT weapon is the front-facing main gun, which accommodates 6 shells. All weapon positions offer a fair range of elevation. The main gun and rear dual MGs (on two vehicle packages) are viable threats to aircraft.
