Abstract

1388298 Amphibious vehicles W HOPFENSITZ 2 June 1972 25812/72 Headings B7A and B7V A buoyant frame 23, 24 is arranged to support a motor vehicle in such manner that its driving wheels are connected through gearing to four endless tracks 7 mounted at the free ends of parallelogram linkages 5. Steering movements of the vehicles wheels are transmitted through a linkage (not shown) to all four trucks 7. In use the vehicle is driven on to power take off rollers 2, the linkages 5 are then lowered to lift the frame off the ground, the tracks are then operated to propel the apparatus into the water, after which the linkages 5 are raised and the apparatus is propelled through the water by ribs on the tracks. In a modification (not shown) the chain transmission 8-12 is replaced by shafts and bevel gears.
