The light Diehl Defence segmented rubber band track, selected for the protected transport vehicle BV 206 S of the German Army, features separating points that can be disassembled into four easily carried segments. This facilitates considerably the assembly on the vehicle, as well as transportation and storage. Moreover, now it is even possible to change the track in the field and under operational conditions,
and that in a fraction of the time previously required. Individual replacement segments can be carried in order to be able to restore vehicle mobility in the fastet time possible if any track damage has occurred due to an accident or enemy action. The core of the band track 325B is formed by high strength ties whose new type of design and construction guarantees a long service life of the supporting structure.
