      Wheels are more efficient because of the reduced rolling resistance. Treads are necessary on soft ground because high ground pressure will kick out dirt instead of moving the truck or tank.

    If I had to pick only one I'd pick tread. Treads are orders of magnitude better off road

        Is convertible drive acceptable?

        but extra moronic and complex, basically the idea is you drive off road on tracks and lower the wheels on road to get the best of both worlds with the low low cost of the weight and complexity of an entire second set of running gear and a transfer box for drive

        Christie's refinement was to yeet the road wheels and run the tank directly on it's regular track wheels, but trackless (this was also stupid)

    There are some wheeled AFVs that get me stiff, namely the panHARD EBR and AML but overall I find tracks sexier. I'll frick any AFV regardless

    /k/ doesn't care about anything but appearance so model matters much more.

    The half-track is the perfect /k/ vehicle is it combines wheels and tracks while being obsolete and having plenty of flat panels for tranime decals.

      Half tracks were only a thing because the tires back then were so shitty. No one uses it anymore because they're obsolete

        It had nothing to do with tires. It gave the off-road capability of tracks with the easy driving controls of a car. It was made obsolete by advances in all-wheel-drive tech

      tracks still last thousands of miles, how far do you need to drive equipment

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        it's not practical to drive tracked vehicles over long distances of road for a variety of reasons. they're slower, harder to fix, more fuel intensive, have less longevity than tires, and they cause damage to pavement.

        >tracks still last thousands of miles
        when do combat vehicles go to battle with 0 miles on their tracks? virtually never. you don't want to find out exactly how many miles they had left on them when you're only halfway there

    Armored vehicles in general are obsolete. Except for rear-line transports which just need mine-resistance and small arms / fragments, doing anti-insurgent ops, etc. So if you’re going to bring an armed vehicle into a peer or near-peer war you should only bring wheeled. Simply because wheeled vehicles are easier to transport and maintain.

    Tracked made sense in the old paradigm of armored warfare in which it was very beneficial to run heavy fighting vehicles off-road in frequently muddy / soft terrain. The new paradigm is that those heavy armored fighting vehicles are obsolete so you won’t be driving them into those conditions. You’ll be moving stuff from point A to point B in the rear, or parking a missile carrier / gun far in the back, etc. So it just makes sense to go wheeled.

    Is it possible to make a tread-wheel hybrid? Like you just take off the tread and it's good to go. So if you get tracked you might be able to just keep on going without stopping.
