Why are caterpillar tracks used in battle tanks instead of tyre

Battle tanks use caterpillar tracks to spread their heavy weight on soft ground. this prevents the sinking of land under the weight of the tank ( as more the surface area less the pressure)

it enables the tank to go through tricky places...if it had tires, the tires would hit a sharp stone and puncutre or explode...but if ur father / mother are in the armed forces (just like mine) u shoul ask them to take u to see a tank
