PMP Floating Bridge
The PMP Floating Bridge is a type of mobile pontoon bridge designed by the Soviet Union during World War II. The bridge's design enables for a quick assembly of its parts. It has a carrying capacity of 60 tons. The bridge was originally mounted on a Kr AZ-214, but later transferred to a Kr AZ-255. During the process of its deployment, a truck carrying the bridge is backed alongside the edge of a body of water. The bridge is then rolled off where it unfolds automatically. The bridge spans 390 metres with 32 river pontoons, 12 bridging boats and four shore pontoons.
