how does a tank work

A tank is a vehicle that has big tracks on the bottom, like a tank tread. It moves around using these tracks instead of wheels. The tracks help the tank travel over rough terrain like mud and rocks. Inside the tank there is a driver and gunner that control the tank. The driver uses a steering wheel and pedals to control the tank's speed and direction. The gunner uses a joystick to control the turret and gun on top of the tank. The gunner can use the turret to aim the gun at targets they want to shoot at. The gun fires bullets, missiles, or shells at the targets.
