Hi, I`m looking for some really Old and Bold to help me out in a discussion. In the Sixties, when I was working on Centurions, there was a rumour, (?), that all the tracks fitted to Cents were actually fitted backwards to stop damage to road surfaces, and, according to some tankies, in the event of war the tracks would be changed around to provide more grip. All the manuals say that the tracks should be fitted as they were, but these manuals were peacetime issue, and made no mention of wartime conditions. The old tankies could sometimes be heard to say that their tanks would not slip and slide so much if they were allowed to fit the tracks the "right" way round. i have heard this saying, but with no written proof I cannot say which way round is correct, so I was wondering if there are any Cent dozer tank crews on site, or indeed any crews, who can help me out. After all I might have been that FRG team that got you going again at Soltau!! Regards, Harry.
