Depending on the surface to be traversed, a tracked vehicle with one track longer than the other would need a differential to prevent it travelling in a circle.

Actually it wouldn't need a differential. The rear drive sprockets on both sides can easily travel at the same RPM. The only difference is the distance the track must travel to make a revolution.
