Urban Gardini Holger, the A7V is still the largest tank produced ever when you measure the fighting compartment...

John Van Kooten @Hunter:
It was an early design tank (late WWI era) so it was a slow crawler, infantry could walk and keep up with it, for clearing the battlefield during the trench wars and breaking through / diminishing enemy lines.

It wasn't very successful though. Visibility was poor and so was the armament, hence it couldn't do a lot of damage.

It's first engagement in battle was a disaster, not in the least because the battlefield was turned into a moon landscape due to the 10 days of heavy artillery bombardment before the actual battle started (a standard practice during WWI). The tanks obviously had to avoid driving into the bomb craters and carefully prepared minefields and therefor German artillery could focus their fire easily on them. And because the Germans were actually quite fearful of these new "monsters", they turned ALL their artillery on them, even calling in extra support from other defense lines. It was a massacre. Those tanks were literally obliterated.
If I recall correctly 76 of the 129 tanks were destroyed. Many of them hit by artillery fire before they could even reach the German lines, in fact, a lot of them were already hit before they could even leave their OWN lines...
The tanks that did manage to get to the German lines could do nothing at all since the infantry was not able to follow (due to very heavy enemy fire). Those slow moving pillboxes were either picked off by German artillery / pioneers or they returned to their own lines without having done much damage at all.

In contrast to the A7V the CA Schneider was not very large. The fighting compartment was only 1.5 meters high.

Btw, "CA" is an abbreviation for "Char D'Assault", literally meaning "Tank for Assault".
