Supply sledges


I'm building supply sledges to be towed behind a tank but are unsure on how to attach two sledges to each other.



I can't see this on pictures of the real thing but I have seen a build where the modeller used two parallell chains between the sledges.

But I wonder if this mount wouldn't make them hard to steer an make a strain on the chains.

I would have guessed that a "triangular" mount of the chains would work better? Any ideas on this?

I imagine the chains would have been crossed but attached to the outer corners of each sledge, as per the parallel chains. As you turn one goes slack; the chain from the outside (of the turn) rear corner of the front sledge to the inside front corner of the rear sledge remains tight, encouraging it to follow the turn in line.
But I have no evidence that this was applied to the supply sledges, its just the logical, practical, method.
