Abstract:

A patent is described for a tracked vehicle suspension containing a transverse balance beam spring-supported by means of flat rubber elastic elements. The beam is hinged at the middle to the chassis of the vehicle and the ends rest on the track carriers. The design is simplified by mounting the balance beam on the midsection of a pivot, the ends of the pivot being rigidly fastened to the midsections of support beams whose ends rest on the chassis through elastic rubber elements.
