Armoured vehicle. Historical artwork of a design for an armoured tank by the Italian artist, engineer and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452- 1519). Leonardo wrote of his vehicles: "I can make armoured cars; safe and unassailable which will enter the serried ranks of the enemy with their artillery, and there is no company of men at arms so great that they will not break through". The tank was designed to have eight men inside it who made it move.

Chemical plant storage tanks
Chemical plant storage tanks. The industrial-scale manufacture of chemicals requires specialised engineering to meet a wide range of storage requirements. Products and reactants, ranging from liquids to gases and solids, have to be kept at the correct temperature and pressure. They then need to be piped or transported around the site to and from these storage facilities. These tanks are part of a larger oil refinery and chemical manufacturing site. Oil refining and chemical manufacturing are closely related industries, as oil products are used in a wide range of chemical industry manufacturing processes. Photographed at ExxonMobil's Fawley Oil Refinery and Chemical Plant, Hampshire, UK, which is one of the largest petrochemical plants in Europe.
