The 'tank', as it was called, was an idea that lingered since classical times, but it was introduced by the British in the Great War. The name tank was introduced because of the fact that it was developed in big secrecy, and the project was framed as the developement of a water-reservoir or 'tank'.
In the battlefield, it was introduced on the Somme-battlefield under the name of Mark 1 in September 1916. The 50 odd Mark 1's didn't help much at this point in the war, the battle of the Somme ended with no territorial gains and more than a million dead on both sides.
