Maybe there would be more answers if this thread was in the
Armor/AFV-forum instead ....
Let me know and I will move it if you want me to ...

Photographic evidence shows that the guide horns were sometimes spot welded to the armour. There are some (Canadian?) wagons where the links were removed but the traces of weld remain.

A Polish Firefly is next, and it's covered! The track shoes have end connectors for a 3-6 string of tracks, and road surface OUT. I also have a USMC Sherman that needs welded track armor. How are they welded i.e. a hanger system?? Is top one weld and the rest hang off that one?? ARMS is kicking in......Stuart
