I am truly sorry but I could not find a better place for this thread.

 

If built in real life, would O-Ni and O-Ho (100 and 120 tons respectively) even move at all with these tracks? They look extremely narrow, narrower than a T-34's.

Even a heavy guy can ride a roadbike with extremely thin tires and there are huge crawler cranes with multiple thousand tons, which can still move with tracks.

 

I think this is still possible, but will raise the groundpressure, because you have the same weight on a smaller bearing surface.

 

So the biggest Problem would be, that they will get stuck pretty quickly in soft terrain.

The germans used thinner tracks (Verladeketten) to get the tiger on a standard train wagon and switched back to the wide tracks after unloading the tank from the train.
