Quick question, why wouldn't you have all 4 sets of wheels powered?

No idea, ask the Studebaker Corporation....LOL!

Looks like a Sherman BARV.
Nope.  Sherman ARV Mk II

Are you sure it's not a Ram ARVE?  The stepped glacis and the hatch in the front of the glacis and on the side are Ram features.

This web page would agree:  http://www.ramtank.ca/ram_mk2_5.htm

The Sherman ARV II does have a different glacis too.

At a guess, the space needed for the differential on that wheel set intruded into something that the designers thought was more important. Designing multi axle vehicles is something of an art form: I am trying to find a good photo of the undercarriage of the Spähpanzer 2 Luchs; designed by mad German engineers to have 8X8 independent suspention, all wheel drive and all wheel steering. Maintainers must have loved that!

Oh, and take a close look at that picture as well.... ;D

Edit to add: found the undercarriage picture: not quite what I was expecting...

Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

But I found one that I would like to post if I may.

Now I know why I can't play this game. My info says Carro Pesante P26/40 production started by Ansaldo.
So your answer sounds right.

Thx

With the spare wheel on its left side, this (to me) could be the prototype of a Daimler Ferret.

Other than the turret, this seems to be a match.

Quick question, why wouldn't you have all 4 sets of wheels powered?

Best guess.. At the time 4 wheel drive systems were new yet fairly common. 8 wheel drive systems would have been very costly and tricky to engineer. I think they chose what they felt would be the best combination to power using the 2nd and fourth axles.
