Sample text

The original proposals for the TL-1 and TL-4 were powered by the 12 cylinder version of the General Motors X type diesel engine which then was estimated to develop 750 gross horsepower. An XT-500 transmission was to be utilized with this power plant. However, since the X type engine was in an early stage of development, it was proposed that the TL-1 and TL-4 initially be powered by the Continental AOI-1195 and AOI-1490 engines respectively. Later, in order to use as many common components as possible in the two tanks, the AOI-1490 was dropped and both vehicles were designed around the AOI-1195 using a modified version of the XT-270 transmission.

The Chick was intended to provide a high volume of fire against infantry and light armor or against heavy armor at short ranges. Except for the articulated rear propulsion unit which permitted smooth turns, the Hen was similar to the four track tank concepts examined earlier. As such, it also would have suffered from the same disadvantages. For example, it was not possible to apply full vehicle power to the rear tracks when crossing difficult terrain or if the forward tracks were damaged. Although the Hen and Chick concept provided a new approach to armored operations, its advantages were not considered sufficient to warrant further development.

They were used for various tests at Detroit Arsenal and chassis number 8 later was shipped to Aberdeen for stabilizer tests. Chassis number 9 was retained at Detroit, but the turret was transferred later to the Aeroneutronics Division of the Ford Motor Company for use in the development of the Shillelagh weapon system. These four photographs show the first pilot 90mm gun tank T95, registration number 9B1043, at Detroit Arsenal on 4 February 1958. Note the lightweight road wheels on this vehicle.
