GDELS details M3 amphibious bridge order
General Dynamics European Land Systems will deliver the M3 Amphibious Bridge and Ferry System to an unnamed customer in Southeast Asia under a contract announced on 2 February.
The contract is for the latest variant of the system, and the package includes a simulator system, training, special tools and manuals.
The M3 Amphibious Bridge and Ferry System can carry payloads of up to MLC85 tracked vehicles and MLC 132 wheeled vehicles and can build a 100m (330ft) floating bridge in less than 10 minutes. The system can be used for military and civil defence missions.
Thomas Kauffmann, VP international business and services, General Dynamics European Land Systems, said: ‘The award of the contract once again underlines the quality and superior performance of General Dynamics European Land Systems’ mobile bridge systems and the high reputation our company and products have in the defence market as the most modern and most powerful amphibious bridge and ferry system.’
