Volvo Tracked over Snow Vehicle.
The Volvo BV202E Snowcat (left) is an amphibious cross-snow vehicle. Tracks enable a much lower ground pressure than wheels, lower even than a man on foot.
This Volvo Snowcat is in British Army winter camouflage colours and was at the Museum of Army Transport Beverley. The Volvo BV202 is used by the British Army as a command post, as a repair vehicle and for other duties.
The Volvo Snowcat has a motor in the front unit.
Power also passes to the rear articulated unit
and drives all four tracks.
