MILITARY TRUCKS AND ENGINEERING VEHICLES E-BOOK
A military engineering vehicle is a vehicle built for the construction work or for the transportation of combat engineers on the battlefield. These vehicles may be modified civilian equipment (such as the armoured bulldozers that many nations field) or purpose-built military vehicles.
What is Military Engineering?
Military engineering can employ a wide variety of heavy equipment in the same or similar ways to how this equipment is used outside the military. Bulldozers, cranes, graders, excavators, dump trucks, loaders, and backhoes all see extensive use by military engineers.
Military engineers may also use civilian heavy equipment which was modified for military applications. Typically, this involves adding armour for protection from battlefield hazards such as artillery, unexploded ordnance, mines, and small arms fire.
Often this protection is provided by armour plates and steel jackets. Some examples of armoured civilian heavy equipment are the IDF Caterpillar D9, American D7 TPK, Canadian D6 armoured bulldozer, cranes, graders, excavators, and M35 2-1/2 ton cargo truck.
MILITARY TRUCKS AND ENGINEERING VEHICLES
There are different types of vehicles for military purpose.
Militarized heavy equipment may also take on the form of traditional civilian equipment designed and built to unique military specifications. These vehicles typically sacrifice some depth of capability from civilian models in order to gain greater speed and independence from prime movers.
Examples of this type of vehicle include high speed backhoes such as the Australian Army’s High Mobility Engineering Vehicle (HMEV) from Thales or the Canadian Army’s Multi-Purpose Engineer Vehicle (MPEV) from Arva.
Military Vehicle Types
- Armoured engineering vehicle
- Armored bulldozer
- Armoured earth mover
- Breaching vehicle
- Bridging vehicles
- Combat engineer section carriers
- Military ferries and amphibious crossing vehicles
- Tank based combat engineering vehicles
Tank-based combat engineering vehicles
Most combat engineering vehicles (CEV) are armoured fighting vehicles that may be based on a tank chassis and have special attachments in order to breach obstacles. Such attachments may include dozer blades, mine rollers, cranes etc.
An example of an engineering vehicle of this kind is a bridge laying tank, which replaces the turret with a segmented hydraulic bridge.
The Hobart’s Funnies of the Second World War were a wide variety of armoured vehicles for combat engineering tasks. They were allocated to the initial beachhead assaults by the British and Commonwealth forces in the D-Day landings
- Churchill tank
- M4 Sherman
- Leopard 1
- Leopard 2
- MTU-72 (Ob’yekt 632)
- BLP 72
