They Sucked My Brain!
Permalink Closed

After reading a lot about tanks, I was very interested in the various concepts of trying to improve steering and traction on tanks.

I always thought the idea of a Single Band Tracked Vehicle was very interesting, but of course, you could never steer it.

Then I thought... What about De Moles concept of curving the tracks? This would work on a conventional tank - but it would also work on a Single Track vehicle. But then of course, you have the problem of simply falling over. You can now turn a single track vehicle, but go very fast and you'll spill it on its side.

Then I thought... What about Snake Tracks? Make every track plate be able to flex laterally. Now, not only can you initiate a turn, but you can actually lean into it, just like with a motorcycle - except now you have a fully functional TANK MOTORCYCLE.

I thought that was such an awesome breakthrough idea I never told anyone except trusted people.

Then a year or so later... They sucked my brain.

However, I am not certain the German designers of this Hyanide vehicle know that their work isn't exactly original. All they did was combine a Single Track Vehicle, with Curved Track Steering, and Snake Tracks: All WWI concepts
