How it works?
When this vehicle arrives on the field, Vehicle-Launched Bridge would position itself on one side of the river then stabilizing itself by extending those legs on both sides. Stairs are lowered at the tail and a hydraulic pole can raise the main body of the bridge and extend the folding bridge forward rapidly. The hydraulic device is responsible for stretching and extending the bridge, on the other part of the river, the same vehicle is parked and processing the same task to allow 2 bridges to meet and lock in the middle, the buckled link makes the bride even more stable.
