Second one I have seen, but you know the pictures always disappear. So here they are to be saved, for a while anyway.

Sorry it took so long...knew I had it somewhere around here:

Tank Tread Astro.png
Tank Tread Astro.png (303.47 KiB) Viewed 539 times
Seems that is the type Treads they all use. Saw a Kodiak on TV that had 2 sets of treads with the fronts that had standard steering and skid steer - nearly unstoppable.

GEN I, not to be outdone.

Enjoy !!

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.

What's the drivetrain like on those things? How does the trans attach to the treads? Is there a differential? Brake steering like on a tank/tractor?

Prety cool idea specially adding the Astro/Safari body to it since it allows more passengers or cargo then the ones seen on 007 movies which were still in use in Alaska last time I was here.
