One of the American projects in 1946 was testing of the M24 Chaffee with the suspension from the German Sd.Kfz. 8. Its chassis with staggered wheel arrangement and tracks with needle bearings had excellent movement characteristics and was of great interest to researchers. Testing on solid terrain yielded satisfactory results, which could not be said about soft terrain. In general, there were no obvious advantages of using this suspension compared to the standard M24 Chaffee suspension. Testing was stopped and the project was terminated.
