Bridge Layer AM-50

This is a special wheeled vehicle for launching a mobile bridge over obstacles of 10 to 12,5 m in width, that can support vehicles of up to 50 tons. Obstacles of greater width can be spanned by up to 8 of these bridge layers.

The bridge construction is mounted on the chassis of a 8x8 TATRA-815 truck. It is equipped with central controlled air pressure in its tyres and a protection system against chemical, biological and radioactive agents. The depth of a bridged obstacle can be from 2 to 6 metres.
