Default GURPS 4e books with real-world tank stats

A somewhat odd request here - Which GURPS 4e books contain real-world tank stats (Minimum one statline in vehicle format)? I regret to be unable to provide a definitive definition of a tank, so I will end with a link to the wikipedia article:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank

Edit: GURPS 4e has so few tanks that there's no point in restricting this to just real-world tanks. Throw me the names of any official GURPS 4e material containing tanks. Magic tanks, steampunk tanks, tanks that run off clockwork - if it's a tanks, tanks for it. ;)
  • Fantasy Tech 1
  • High-Tech - pages 234, 238, 244
  • Pyramid 3/67
  • Ultra-Tech - page 226
  • Steampunk 1
  • Vehicles: Steampunk Conveyances

I suspect that's the only one.

But there could possibly be one in Seals in Vietnam. I don't have that to check. I ran through the 4e book list and didn't see any likely candidates...

Could be something hiding in a pyramid but I'd be surprised.

That's surprising and disappointing. Still, thanks for the info, even though it wasn't what I was hoping.

No urgency, though; I just like tanks. :)

SEALs in Vietnam does not have any tanks in it.

Pyramid 3/67 has the stats for the Tiger tank. As far as I can see that's it outside of High-Tech.

I think Ultra tech have some grav tank, but I don't have the book.
and there is an article in pyramid for using the spaceship building system to create other vehicles and that may have some examples of tanks or AFV's...but I don't have that one either.

Well, tanks anyway. ;)

Checking my copy of UT: Page 226 has the start of the Tanks vehicle section, and page 227 has stats for three tanks; a TL9 Light Battle Tank, a TL10 Hovertank, and a TL10^ Grav Tank.

Edit: Not real-world tanks, but there's so few tanks in GURPS that that restriction is basically pointless. If it's a tank, throw a post in here. Even if it runs on an Aether engine and has a Thaumic Cannon. ;)

Vehicles: Steampunk Conveyances has a Land Ironclad. It's very weird but a clear conceptual forerunner to WWI tanks.

Fantasy Tech 1 has da Vinci tanks in it.

It seems likely that Steampunk 2 has some kind of tank in it, but I don't have that book.


...I mostly statted out a historical T-26 light tank at one point, but I don't think I've got it on my current computer.

As long as it's clearly a tank, it's now in. ;) Tanks for the tanks.

Will wait for confirmation on Steampunk 2.

Unofficial sources (blogs, wikis, etc) are not something I'm particularly interested in for tabletop RPGs unless I've personally vetted a source; so official sources only, please. No offence intended to anyone; there is a lot of great and well-written material out there. However, there is also some... not-so-well written material. I'm much more of a tank enthusiast than a tank expert, and I don't want this to be "Say's vetted list of tank sources."

I don't know if it has a one line stat listing, but among the sample characters at the end of the Campaigns book, there's a futuristic centauroid robot tank.
