Currently, tracks are very short/wide compared to tracks IRL on tanks and whatnot. This causes techs to be short track spam which is not visually appealing at all.
So, HE could have a 7*1 or 9*1 track that deals with terrain decently and will be quite a bit more expensive then 2 or 3 M4s so we can make those visually appealing tanks instead of boring multi-track vehicles.

The tank treads in Terratech act almost like a single large flat wheel, because AFAIK the individual wheels on the treads don't have individual suspension. This means that a single large tread is actually going to have a tougher time dealing with terrain. Ironically, the best emulation of tank tracks are overlapping wheels.
