How much concrete do you encounter in the outdoors?
But Erbsworst did not put it under MBT tracks.
Aye ive followed the survival russia YouTube channel for years and he's got an unarmoured russian "gator" tracked vehicle, god knows what it's actually called but basically I heard the weight of the tank spread out on the tracks is supposedly less than an average man stood on one leg.I'd almost guarantee it would survive upside down. The weight of a tank is spread over a very large area - the actual ground pressure is surprisingly low compare to a wheeled vehicle. My driver could take the tank over a village green and, without looking very closely, you wouldn't know we had been there - partly driving skill of course but also very low ground pressure.
Fairly OT. I once saw a comparison study of ground pressure of different vehicles in forest environment, the idea being that the less pressure the less damage to ground and tree roots. The poor horse ended up being worst and was deemed the destroyer of the forest. Now if anyone actually goes and looks at the ground after cutting it is the heavy but least pressure harvester that leaves the destruction. Hmmm... come to think of the elks, huge pressure on their cloven hoofs must shoot them all for destroying ...I heard the weight of the tank spread out on the tracks is supposedly less than an average man stood on one leg.
as mentioned, apart from the engine swap and service/consumable items all is original. Chassis is unwelded and doesn’t need any welding either.As a matter of interest, how much is original ? Any 30+ year old Landy up here would be on chassis number 2 or 3.
My Trianga is 35 years old, and my Kelly kettle is about the same
