August 12 - Move One Logistics has transported an advanced bridge-building vehicle from the UK to Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan.
This Dry Support Bridge (DSB) Launcher, is an unusual military support vehicle weighing in at over 42 tonnes. It is sufficiently robust to support military vehicles and can independently bridge a 46 metre gap in less than 90 minutes.
The specialist vehicle is vital not only in its support of military operations in hostile territory, but in assisting engineers to repair essential infrastructure and civil utilities.
"This giant may be designed to get convoys wherever they need to be, but the vehicle also needs to be transported before it can be put to work. This is where Move One gets involved. " said Stephen McKinney, Move One Logistics' station manager at Camp Leatherneck.
