The tank army on the map

Tanks are vehicles from Final Fantasy IV. They are the artillery of the Dwarves in the Underground, who seem to favor using tanks instead of manufacturing airships. It is not specified why tanks, rather than airships, are the vehicle of choice for the Dwarves. However, the intense heat of the Underground takes its toll on many of the airships that enter it, causing them to crash in some cases and otherwise limiting their range as a result of the lava rivers. Presumably this is why airships were forgone in favor of hardier tanks.

When Cecil and his allies first enter the underground, they are caught in a battle between the tanks and the Red Wings, which damages the Enterprise. At the castle of King Giott, it is remarked that the tanks have successfully repelled the airship attack, suggesting they are more formidable than one would think. Giott later orders the tanks to attack the Tower of Babil, distracting them while Cecil and his allies infiltrate the tower. Dr. Lugae orders the Super Cannon to destroy the army, but Yang sacrifices himself to stop the cannon.

When the Giant of Babil attacks, Giott and Yang lead the tank corps to attack the giant alongside an airship fleet commanded by Cid. The last mention of the tanks occurs in the ending, where Giott commands the tank army scrapped so the parts may be used to rebuild the castle, as they will no longer be needed for war.
