LEGUAN Bridge System
The LEGUAN bridge system has been designed as a unique solution for a variety of applications. When applied to a tracked vehicle or to a heavy truck, the system can lay either one 26 meter length bridge or two 14 meter bridges.
As the system is fully automatic it is possible for one individual to construct and reload it within a five minute period. The success has resulted in the system being fitted to numerous new or used tracked vehicles including the Leopard 1, Leopard 2, M1A1/A2, M60/M47 and the PT91/T72.
The LEGUAN bridge system can also be applied as a floating bridge and ferry with the use of additional pontoons and hydraulically operated ramps. This is simply achieved by sliding the tank-or truck launched bridge over the pontoons and fastening it in place.
