Tyng Industries announces that tank T005, the Tyng T34, has rolled under its own 
power and under remote control for the first time on February 1st. 2003.  T005 
completed one circuit of the Tyng Proving Grounds. Speed was not measured but it was 
noted that the T005 was moving at a quick walking pace.  T005 was able to complete 
gentle curves in both forward and reverse directions.  On this first foray T005 was 
not able to complete a turn in place.  Slippage was evident in both the track 
friction drive wheels and the motor belt drive reduction systems when hi-stress 
maneuvers were attempted.  Tyng Labs is confident that further refinement of the 
track and belt tensioning systems will overcome this initial problem.  On the 
control side, the T005's electronic speed controls and steering mixer worked well 
and as expected.  Furthur testing will be required to ensure that the speed controls 
are providing maximum amperage to the drive motors.
