8041Oldest tank designLeonardo Da VinciBulgaria, Sofia01 January 2007The oldest tank design was created by the Italian artist and inventor, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), who draughted and tested some innovative inventions, amongst which were early concepts for a tank. There was provision for outward facing guns, and the whole machine was covered in wood for protection. It was designed for locomotion with wheels rather than tracks such as those fitted to modern tanks, hence it would have been very difficult and cumbersome to manoeuvre. Although the tank was never actually built, however a model of it was constructed for display in early 2007 at Sofia City Art Gallery, Bulgaria.

8047First submarine carsQuabafirstSwitzerland, Geneva16 March 2008The Swiss company Rinspeed has created the world’s first, real, submersible car called the “sQuaba”. Displayed at the Geneva Motor Show 6-16 March 2008, the carsub is powered electrically by three rechargeable lithium-ion batteries: one for power on land and one for each of the twin propellers when on or in the water. In addition, two powerful Seabob jet drives in the front, assist manoeuvrability. The car design is based on the British Lotus Elise sports car and is open top for safety reasons, so that the occupants can easily get out in an emergency – hence they have to wear scuba gear to breathe. The car can drive straight into the sea and then float until a hatch is opened to allow water to flood the body and gradually sink the car. Underwater, it effectively flies at a depth of 10 metres.

8056First depiction of organised armed forcesUnknownfirst, MesopotamiaThe need to defend food, manpower and minerals gave rise to the fortification of villages and towns in prehistoric times. The earliest armies emerged around 3000BC – particularly in the Sumerian culture of Mesopotamia. The earliest depiction of an organized armed force that could be called an army in the modern sense of the word appears in the Royal Standard of Ur, excavated from one of the Sumerian city-states in the 1920s by the British archaeologist, Sir Leonard Wolley. It depicts light infantry with javelins and battleaxes and heavy, helmeted infantry with longer spears. A commemorative tablet, the Stele (an upright slab bearing sculptured designs) of Vultures, erected to celebrate the victory of King Eannatum over the state of Umma, shows that, by about 2450 BCE, these armies were fighting in a tight formation of helmeted spearmen.
8057First standing armyUnknownfirst, MesopotamiaOrganized warfare began around 3000 BCE and, by about 2250BCE, the Sargon of Agade - the first great conqueror of the Sumerian cities of Mesopotamia - is generally believed to have formed the first standing (permanent) army of some 100,000 soldiers. With it, the Assyrians went on to form an enormous empire - the first military power in history - for that period encompassing most of Mesopotamia. The army had a well-developed chain of command and specialised units such as cavalry and bowmen. As with most empires, its multi-national nature and overstretched resources proved to much for it to control, and a series of uprisings caused its collapse in around 612BCE.

8065Most effective ant gardenerSchumann’s ant (Myrmelachista schumanni)01 January 2011Normally, a rainforest exhibits profound diversity among its complement of tree species. However, thanks to the record-breaking ‘gardening’ skills of Schumann’s ant (Myrmelachista schumanni), there are numerous sizeable stands of trees within the Amazon rainforest that consist entirely of just a single species of tree, Duroia hirsuta. These bizarre single-species stands are referred to as devil’s gardens, and are deliberately created by the ant. It nests in this particular tree’s hollow stems, and so it poisons all other plant species in the area by injecting them with formic acid, thereby promoting its own tree’s growth and reproduction.
