Interesting stuff.

Reversing a trailer behind an articulated vehicle? Rather them than me!

Aren't they a controlled articulation?..not just a free joint...

the "CAT" is actually steered by the artic joint using a system or push / pull rams, quite straight forward to drive and reverse with not to much practice..

I think I'll try to stick to shingle beaches. That's horrible, silty, sticky looking stuff they're on there. Reminds me slightly of the upper Exe estuary.

Tracks look useful, though. And versatile.
