I'm currently working on a tank from the Archon Studio terrain kickstarter. It has quite a number of equipment pieces attached to its hull and turret. While I can identify most of the stuff like the tools on the left of the pic or the treads on the right, I have no clue what these "boxes" in the middle are supposed to be. Can any trackhead here enlighten me? It doesn't look like a part of the tracks

They could be anything, they do look like pouches but they could be jerry cans or rations,
they could be days sacks that are stowed to save space inside the cramped tank.

They might be intended as spare track links? Going by how the smaller "ear" bits are offset, like track hinges.

The black things on the right are track links (it's clear when you See the tracks) but the still camo colored things in the middle aren't (at least they don't look like them at all).
I thought about equipment pouches but I was puzzled by the rather strong fixation. As you can see the boxes are fixed by two vertical "bars" each and another horizontal bar on top. A bit excessive for some sleeping bags and the like.

Might really be jerry cans, even if I would Not necessarily put those in the side of the turret... I guess I will paint them some dark brown or grey that would fit either equipment box or jerry can...

I think they are personal packs. Looks like the vertical “bars” are supposed to be straps looped over a restraining bar close to the hull. The big horizontal one might be intended as a metal bar or just a chunky strap.

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

Ah, I see... I was pretty fixated on seeing the vertical ones as made from metal, but being leather stripes would make more sense
