Abstract : A tracked vehicle, such as a military tank, wherein the prong type guides for the tracks are located on the roadwheels rather than on the tracks. The guide prong location puts the guide surfaces closer to the line-of-action of the disturbing force (ground surface) so that the guides are less likely to break or distort. (Author)
