Description

German-British Amphibious Engineer Battalion 130
On 30 September 2021, the reorganisation ceremony of the German Panzerpionierbataillon 130, the British 23 Amphibious Engineer Squadron and the 3rd, 4th and 5th Companies of schweres Pionierbataillon 901 took place in glorious sunshine. The German-British Amphibious Engineer Battalion 130 had been created.
The main weapon systems of the DEU-GBR battalion are the Improved Ribbon Bridge / Faltschwimmbr├╝cke (FSB 2), which is used by heavy armoured wheeled and tracked vehicles, as well as light tactical vehicles, for water obstacle crossings, either as a floating bridge or attached to a ferry; and the Amphibian M3 Schwimmschnellbr├╝cke (SSB) high-speed floating bridge that is the result of further development of the M2 Alligator bridge and ferry vehicle. The combination of the twin capabilities of a land and water vehicle is the key performance feature here.
This publication tells the story of the German-British unit in great detail and supported by impressive exercise photos of all its vehicles.
