    Wasn't sure whether to put in Postwar or not, but it's an interesting article about the technology in relation to modern stuff; and it does come up in relation to our period's tech, often when looking at Halftracks.
    Rubber tracks certainly a WW2 thing, from Weasel to US HTs. (Expensive business from what current owners tell me.)

    Experiments with rubber tracks began in 1918 and the French Kegresse rubber track system emerged in the early 20s. Some Renault FTs were fitted with it. The British Light Infantry Tank of 1921 also employed Snake Tracks which consisted of metal plates on a rubber backbone
