Was it Mike E. that wrote the WW2 conversion for DS2? In it was a few
new types of mobility that may be useful to you. These included Wheeled,
(Half way between a road vehicle and a HM-Wheeled, to be used for Jeeps,
half tracks etc). And Very Slow Tracked. Almost all WW2 armour became
slow tracked (I think it was base move 8", but I couldn't be sure.)
I think they behaved as road wheelers on road and HM off road. Could be
used for Land Rovers etc.

I would then class the above MBTs as slow tracked, and make slower
Very Slow Tracked.

Just a thought.
