You know what would be cool?

Minecraft with guns.

But you know what would be cooler?

Minecraft with giant tanks.

If you feel the same way then here’s some of the better tank mods for Minecraft, so that you can wreak havoc in your own digital world.


5. World War 3

Supported Versions: 1.7-1.8

Albert Einstein once said, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

Yet with all of Einstein’s intelligence, he wasn’t able to predict that World War 3 would be fought via Minecraft guns and tanks.

This World War 3 mod adds loads of new weapons and military vehicles into the game.

Maybe enough to last us until the fourth world war too!

If you’re wondering what this one’s being fought over, I heard that a vengeful certain someone’s dog got assassinated. Rest in peace Franz Furninand.


4. UNU Military Vehicles

Supported Versions: 1.10-1.12

What’s better than fast cars? Powerful cars.

And also tanks.

This mod adds a bunch of military vehicles too, so you can replace that donkey in your driveway with a huge tank.

And I promise you, those enemies of yours will fear you all the more.

In case you’d rather claim victory over your enemies through a stealth attack rather than making them so envious that they explode, all vehicles in this mod come in different colors and camouflage.

Included are blackthorn blue, as well as desert, forest, and winter camouflage.

So whether your arch-nemesis is Scar from The Lion King, Santa Claus, or The Smurfs, the element of surprise will always be on your side.


3. Global Firestorm Pack Mod

Supported Versions: 1.7.10

This is another World War III mod that adds a ton of military vehicles to pick from.

These vehicles include helicopters, planes, and of course, tanks!

Although the vehicles are massive, they’re quite easy to craft.

You’ll be invading villages with your big tank in no time.


2. Halocraft 2.0

Halocraft 2.0 Minecraft game mod

Supported Versions: 1.8-1.10

Minecraft and Halo seem like a strange mix.

But as mod creators have proven time and time again, sometimes what sounds like a strange mix ends up being pretty cool.

Halocraft 2.0 is a mod that adds a bunch of things from the Halo video game series into Minecraft.

This includes weapons, monsters, armor, and if you’ve played Halo then maybe you guessed it already: the iconic Scorpion tank!

If the monsters in Halocraft 2.0 ever get too much for you, just remember that The Scorpion may not be a monster – but it’s definitely just as deadly.


1. Flan’s Mod

Minecraft Flan’s Mod

Supported Versions: 1.12

Flan’s Mod is a mega-mod that adds in loads of new military weapons and vehicles to play with.

Seriously, the weaponry here could have lasted both the world wars, plus the Korean and Vietnam war and then some.

With Flan’s Mod, your armory will be the military equivalent of Kanye West’s closet.

This mod works well in multiplayer because “killing your friends in Minecraft is way more fun than killing mobs” – Sun Tzu, The Art Of War.

If you prefer peace to war, you can also fly large bombers with your friends.

Maybe your friend group can team up with Flan’s Mod to intimidate every (in-game) government military using your cool new Minecraft mod.

Who knew how much fun this could be?
