HX 8x8-based wheeled tactical bridge-laying system @GDELS

General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) – Bridge Systems and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) have presented for the first time the ANACONDA tactical bridge-laying system mounted on a high-mobility 8x8 HX2 carrier vehicle at the 5th User Forum Armament and Utilization – RÜ.NET 2023 conference held on August 30 - 31 in Koblenz.

The bridge, the laying mechanism and vehicle together provide a dry-gap bridge capability for medium- and heavyweight forces.

The ANACONDA from GDELS is the latest version of the well-known BIBER (“beaver”) bridge, over 300 of which have been built for the Bundeswehr, Germany’s NATO partners and other export customers. Mounting the bridges on Rheinmetall’s HX family of tactical trucks provides advantages regarding interoperability, training, service and the supply of spare parts, contributing to the system’s low lifecycle costs.
