HVSS Sherman Tracks (USO192)

HVSS Sherman Tracks (USO192)
includes one set of HVSS Sherman tracks for modelling M1 Super Sherman for Fate Of A Nation.

The standard track fitted to the M4 Sherman was 16.5 inches wide; which during the summer performed satisfactorily. However, once ground conditions started to deteriorate during the autumn and winter months these narrow tracks failed to provide a sufficient level of traction needed to maintain an adequate level of mobility.

Fate Of A Nation
The fate of a nation hangs in the balance. Israel cannot lose even a single battle. One defeat would mean the destruction of the tiny Jewish state. Not waiting to be attacked by the Arab forces massing on its borders, Israel strikes first.

Fate Of A Nation
HVSS Sherman Tracks (USO192) While Duck Bills (the nickname given to extensions which attached to the tracks to provide larger surface area) provided tankers with a short-term solution, the long-term solution came in the form of the new Horizontal Volute Suspension System (or HVSS, for short). HVSS made vehicle maintenance much simpler and with its wide track design; improved the tank’s off-road performance. Together this gave the Sherman a much improved ride and far better flotation over soft ground such as the sandy conditions of the Sinai Desert.
