Abstract:

Two experimental precision-cast sprockets were constructed of composition FS1075 steel and were identical in geometric design to the standard Ordnance items now in use. The precision-cast sprockets were operated a total of 2550 miles on an M48A2 tank and were compared with a set of standard sprockets operated on the opposite side of the same tank. The test sprockets operated successfully and in a more satisfactory manner than the standard sprockets. There was less wear with the experimental sprockets than with the standard. Author
