Can a tank have wheels? Sarah Palin 17/02/09(Thu)07:44 No. 15363

I'm arguing with my friend whether a tank can have wheels or not and what makes a tank a tank.

He's saying in order for a tank to be a tank it has to have a tracked chassis as the main determining factor.

I say it just determines on what its role is. As in a bulky armored vehicle.

I suppose this also goes into the argument of what differentiates a tank from an APC.

Also if a tank is simply determined by treads what about future prototype tanks that only have legs?

Tanks clearly can have more than just treads in my opinion but I suppose i'll let you guys argue about it.

What you have pictured is an armored car.

your supposed tank w/ legs would not be tank

I'd call it a crawler or armored walker

Convertible drives were utilized on tanks due to poor continuous track construction during WW2. Predominantly with tanks using Christie suspension. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christie_suspension

Armored assault chassis were nicknamed "tanks" because the early models looked like big fluid tanks.

In other languages, they are usually called the equivalent of "assault chariot".

Tanks were made with tracks and the first armored vehicles that were called "tanks" were tracked.A "tank" with WHEELS would be called an armored car or SPG,And if the gun is big enough a Tank Destroyer,but certainly not a tank.
