Mainly the German main battle tank Leopard 2 in Action!

The "Panzerlied" (tank-song) is still in use by German Bundeswehr and Austrian Bundesheer today (only 1st stanza). The song is also sung by the Chilean Military and the tune is used for the French Foreign Legion song "Képi Blanc" and, unofficially, by some motorized and parachute units of the Italian army.

German lyrics:
Ob's stürmt oder schneit,
Ob die Sonne uns lacht,
Der Tag glühend heiß,
Oder eiskalt die Nacht.
Verstaubt sind die Gesichter,
Doch froh ist unser Sinn,
Ja unser Sinn;
Es braust unser Panzer
Im Sturmwind dahin!

© Oblt. Kurt Wiehle (1933)
Whether it storms or snows,
whether the sun smiles upon us,
The day glowing hot,
or the night freezing cold.
Dusty are our faces,
but our minds are joyful,
Yes, our minds
Our tank rushes past in the stormwind.
