No. Tanks are a weapon, cavalry is a combat arm. Tanks are not cavalry just like a rifle is not infantry. Saying that tanks are "motorized, armored cavalry" is just as true as saying that they are motorized, armored artillery, or that a truck is motorized, non-armored cavalry. They are not. Tanks can be used to fullfil some of the tasks of cavalry, but that does not mean that they are cavalry. They can also fulfill roles of other combat branches.In fact, tanks were originally created not for exploitation, but to break through the trench lines of WWI, something you claim cavalry can not be used for.ljadw wrote:Tanks are motorized,armored cavalry .
Throughout history, cavalry have won its fair share of victories. It certainly can be used for exploitation, but it has many other roles.ljadw wrote:And cavalry does not win battles,but is used for exploitation .
That has nothing to do with what I posted before, but:ljadw wrote:Tank battles are not decisive and the majority of tank losses are caused by non combat factors .
1) Tank battles (if there is such a thing as "tank battles") can be as decisive (or not) as any other kind of battle;
2) Througth history most soldiers had been killed not by combat but by illness, so what?
