The differential steering drive for a tracked vehicle includes a drive differential interconnecting the drive shafts for the tracks and a steering differential for superimposing additive and subtractive rotations to the tracks for steering and pivot turning. In the preferred embodiment for high speed tracked vehicles, the drive differential is an all-gear no-clutch type limited-slip differential, and the steering differential is an unlimited-slip differential. The differentials are arranged to provide no-slip track operation traveling in straight paths o...
What is claimed is: 1. A differential steering-drive for a vehicle having respective left and right driving traction elements, a propulsion engine with an engine drive shaft, and a steering wheel rotatable by an operator to indicate an intended direction of travel, said steering-drive comprising: a drive differential interconnecting said engine drive shaft and a pair of respective track drive shafts for differentially driving said respective left and right driving traction elements; and a steering differential operatively interconnecting said steering w...
