sorry to hijack thread ,, yesterday at wartime in the vale (in uk) my track with LVT-4 Landing Vehicle Tracked in the arena

the LVT-4 took 2 years to clear customs to get to the UK

thanks for the info
For the record, It absolutely did not take 2 years for that LVT-4 to clear customs. It was exported with no issues at all. We did spend many many many months getting it operational, sea worthy and prepared for export before it left Fl. for the UK.

Hello Mark,

That cylinder is a " roller " which is intended to keep a Halftrack getting its bumper stuck in a shallow ditch if it has to pull off the road,
and such in cross country and combat use.
The idea was that the roller would hit first and with power from traction with tracks it would roll up the ditch side or obstruction and not get stuck.
