Abstract:

The T-156 track being used on the M1 vehicle is made with the roadwheel path rubber and ground pad rubber molded on an integral unit around a binocular style metal insert. The life of this track shoe is severely limited by the rate of wear and chunking to the ground pad side of the track shoe. This contract is an effort to develop modifications to the shoe body and to the ground pad to improve the track life by 20 percent.
