Default Animating tracks of a panzer tank

Hello,

I'm modelling a WWII German panzer tank and, thinking further, i'd like to animate the tracks.

The tracks should be splitted into pieces.

The idea is that every wheel is a rigid body trained by the pieces...

How would you design the system ?

Thnks
