The intent of this program is to produce tank track of the latest design using general stamping and welding methods and maintaining the same or less weight than the forged track. This program was initiated to further the development of the T150 track. The aim is to develop a light weight track shoe and end connector by stamping parts from steel plate, forming, and welding. The ability to fabricate track by this method, equal to the forged track normally used, would broaden the manufacturing base available to produce in case of national emergency. The track is presently being tested at the Nevada Automotive Test Center.
