A track-type vehicle capable of high speed operation over rough terrain includes a frame supported by lefthand and righthand suspension mechanisms individually having a plurality of hydropneumatically actuated struts for supporting the frame on a plurality of wheels. An elastomeric drive belt is entrained about these wheels and is frictionally driven by an elevated drive wheel. Forces from several struts are directed into the frame in a centralized common region which minimizes rocking of the vehicle. A front idler wheel is urged forwardly and downwardly...
A suspension mechanism for supporting a superstructure and a frame of a vehicle, includes a drive wheel rotatably secured to the frame above the ground, a front idler wheel, a rear idler wheel, a forward guide roller assembly, a rearward guide roller assembly, and a track entrained about the wheels and the guide roller assemblies, comprising: rear suspension strut means for resiliently supporting the superstructure on the rear idler wheel; intermediate suspension strut means for resiliently supporting the superstructure on the rearward guide roller assem...
