What Does An Armoured Corps Officer Do

The armoured corps officers are responsible for providing support to foot troops with the help tanks in a battlefield. For this purpose, they are trained to drive tanks. They also do complex study of these tanks. These officers also take different courses for their promotion. The tank is the track vehicles that are used for the purpose of the great enemy destruction. It is the armoured tank that protects the soldiers from being vulnerable along with providing great firepower towards the enemy. The tank has no eyes which mean it rolls everything that comes in its way. It also becomes submarine while passing the trenches that are filled with the water.
No doubt, Armoured corps tanks are the king of the battle. But for successful operations, some supporting corps is also present along with the armoured corps. This supporting corps is infantry. So, tanks cannot operate solely nor they can hold the ground. They either lead the infantry or move along with the infantry in the battle.
