    Except that your tracks aren't that bad and probably don't need any harsh treatment; a nice stiff wire brush or oxalic acid dip is probably all you really need. My local hardware store has these round wire brushes with a shank for putting them in a power drill or the like for $3 or $4 and they work great- so long as one wears safety glasses and a dust mask. Fire, electrolysis, or hydrochloric acid are all rather extreme or difficult to work with and really unnecessary unless the object you have is very, very rusty and beyond that it's reasonable to clean by hand.

    Tank tracks are sizable chunks of cast steel- they're pretty stable and would take a very long time to degrade badly- and unless you see bright orange rust, the oxidation present is probably fairly stable. A wire brush will remove all the loose rust, and that's the stuff to get rid of since it is loose- everything else is actually what's protecting the steel from further degradation. The thing is 70 years old, a combat relic so looking its age and looking like it was dug up are part of the charm of these relics I think- so getting rid of the dirt and obviously loose rust is just cleaning- no need to go further and affect the charm
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
