    1. Here’s what I don’t understand.

      do the individual tires have their own drive and then when it hits an obstacle they turn due to this? Or does it drive the center, and the wheels turn over each other?

    2. Alright, here’s the clue guys: watch a video of it rolling on YouTube:

      Wikipedia:

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landmaster

      A good overview:

      Note: “The via rotating star wheel system also allows the vehicle to climb over fallen trees etc.. All 12 wheels are driven. (But it is an 8 WD because 4 have no road contact)”

    4. It’s not gay if the wheels don’t touch.

    5. I still think they should have beefed up the the geared hub on the inboard side, and gotten rid of that external crossbar. And perhaps put the cab aft of the front axle. That would have made it much more flexible for off-roading…
