The tanks have been removed from GTA 5 Online. The last time they were available was in the Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit update, which released on April 18, 2018.
The tank has no practical use in GTA Online. It simply exists as a fun vehicle to drive around and shoot at other players with. The tank’s only purpose is to add variety to the game, and that’s why it’s so popular among players who want to spice up their experience with something different than their usual racing or deathmatches.
The tanks were removed from GTA 5 Online because Rockstar didn’t think they added anything meaningful to the game and wanted to focus on other activities instead. They may return someday if Rockstar decides there’s a way for them to fit in better, but for now they’re gone for good.
