Impressive new capability

An APFB ferry

“The ferry bridge was an impressive new capability and I was certainly pleased to have had the chance to be one of the first people to get their hands on one.”

Bridging as a commodity

“The M-18 Dry Support Bridge is revolutionary compared to the way we’ve been doing bridging of this type up to now, with fewer soldiers required, less time to assemble and disassemble, a greater MLC rating and better transportability.”

LTC Tom Svisco, U.S. Army Product Manager for bridging

Kazer Bridge restoration in Iraq

A DSB as a principle transport route in Iraq

“Though the bridge was constructed quickly, it’s no slapdash structure. It’s a one-lane bridge that can hold 70 tons.”

Night-time emplacement in Iraq

Any trained division can build an MGB in any condition

“The bridge build was delayed several times by traffic congestion from the 3rd Infantry Division moving towards Baghdad. It was night, no natural illumination. Soldiers were navigating with night vision goggles and a limited number of chem-lights. Chemical alerts put soldiers in MOPP 4 conditions for 45 minutes on two occasions. All the time the unit was also focused on building a Medium Girder Bridge — which was emplaced by dawn.”
