Tanks look set to make a reappearance in Grand Theft Auto 5, after images of the war machine were spotted in the game's latest trailer.

Tanks were last seen in GTA: San Andreas and are a fan-favourite amongst the game's community.

Rockstar has yet to formally confirm the return of tanks in GTA 5, but a tank (spotted by GTAForums) can be seen at the 54 second mark in today's new trailer.

GTA 5's leaked achievements list revealed that the game is set to see the return of Rampages - with some almost certainly set to be built around tanks.

GTA 5 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17, with stores across the country primed to open for midnight launches. Yet to see today's trailer? You're missing out.
