When the IDF was about to run out of spare rubber tracks for its half-tracks, converting them to an all-wheel configuration was briefly considered. At least one prototype was built before the idea was dropped.

Wheeled - Copy

Instead the IDF decided to start manufacturing the old Goodyear steel reenforced rubber band tracks themselves which proved to be a boon to all the military vehicle restorers the world over.

However this vehicle WOULD make for a nice model! I had seen drawings of such a truck but never a photo. Very Nice.
