Video Game: Tank
Tank is the first tank combat game, created by Atari and released in 1974 by Atari's subsidiary (and fake "rival" to get around exclusive agreements with distributors) Kee Games. It's a Player Versus Player, timed, Top-Down View battle between two tanks in a maze of walls.

It was a big success, so much so that distributors abandoned their demands for exclusive agreements, allowing Atari to reveal that it owned Kee. Had several sequels: Tank 2 (with land mines), Tank III, Tank 8 (for up to eight players), and Ultra Tank. It's the ancestor of the tank games in Combat for the Atari 2600.
