AM 70 EX
The AM-70 EX Bridge Laying Vehicle is a new mobile vehicle-launched bridge designed to provide the neccessary maneuverability to military units by fast deployment over dry or wet gaps, featuring above all the MLC 70 class high load-carrying capacity. Thanks to the ability to interconnect individual bridge sections, the AM-70 EX offers an insuperable flexibility and a theoretically unlimited width of spanned gap.

Purpose of the vehicle
The AM-70 EX has been designed to transport, launch and load a single bridge section. Several AM-70 EX vehicles together are capable of building a multi-section bridge by their gradual interconnection.
The bridge may be loaded and unloaded from arbitrary side, which will enable, after crossing one gap and loading bridge sections from the other side, to smoothly continue to another gap and launch a new bridge.
