Thought this was sort of interesting. Only three were built. One actually survives.

Now that is one cool vehicle, I'm amazed they didn't make more. Was there a specific reason they didn't make more than 3? With the tracks looks like it could go almost anywhere. I'm assumeing that it retained front wheel drive as well like a regular Jeep. With the pics from the milweb site it would be possible to scratchbuild or convert a 1/6th jeep into one of these

We beat both the baddies before it completed and passed trials.
Big hurdle was no track steering.
Front wheels were driven, had to modify drive ratios between front and rear.
