Re: this rig is cool no matter who built it
I think the original intent behind them was to have soldiers parachute in with them, then assemble them and cross what ever terrain they had to. A lot of odd or curious things like this came out of the "war time" minds (and still do), and often just don't work out or arrive too late to be used effectively.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
