The only known image of the Vezdekhod
Vezdekhod (Вездеход, Go Anywhere) was an Imperial Russian tank design. In December of 1914, Alexander Porokhovshchikov was granted permission to proceed with his suggestions for a track-laying vehicle with an armored shell. It was to be built in cooperation with the Chief Engineer Officer of the North-western Front of the First World War. A test chassis without armor was completed in March 1915. The Vezdekhod had a single track and was steered by two small wheels, one on each side of the wheel. The Central Technical Committee cancelled the project in December 1995 and an armored body was never mounted on the chassis. Although the project was reopened in October 1916, it was unsuccessful.
