During World War I, General Electric developed the first American military tank. A variation of the tank was a electrically propelled gun mount. Both the tank and the gun mount used a Caterpillar tractor chassis and a GE gasoline-electric motor, making them both hybrid vehicles. This image offers a side view of the tank ascending a grade.
