What's the use/utility of a half-track by comparison with a wheeled or full-tracked vehicle?
The main advantage of half-tracks over wheeled vehicles is that the tracks reduce the pressure on any given area of the ground by spreading the vehicle's weight over a larger area, which gives it greater mobility over soft terrain like mud and snow, while they do not require the complex steering mechanisms of fully tracked vehicles - relying instead on their front wheels to direct the vehicle, augmented in some cases by track braking controlled by the steering wheel.

It is not difficult for someone who can drive a car to drive a half-track, which is a great advantage over fully tracked vehicles which require specialized training. Half-tracks thus facilitate moving personnel and equipment successfully across varying terrain.

That is an absolute tragedy. Makes the Xmas tsunami or Fukishima look akin to a slightly grazed knee.

Carro Veloce L3 - the Italian equivalent of the Bren Carrier. Armed with an MG and a flame-thrower. A flame-thrower that projected a flame that would be overtaken by the vehicle if it was fired whilst the vehicle was advancing at speed...

If there is a halftrack thread I apologise for posting this here, but just come across this vid. I'm impressed by the obstacle crossing capabilities, and that's without the roller.
