Video | Record breaking amphibious bridge

Amphibious bridge

British Army engineers have built the longest amphibious bridge ever made.

Source: Video produced by Sgt Gary Kendall; Crown copyright.

The 350m long structure constructed by the 75 Engineer Regiment in Chelmno in North West Poland, and was part of the largest joint exercise in Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War. It was constructed using M3 amphibious rigs, which were interlocked to create a stable bridging platform.

The troops were working with their counterparts from 130 Pioneer Battalion of the Bundeswher, the unified armed forces of Germany.
