Two video episodes of the M60A1 Armored Vehicle Landing Bridge (AVLB) during loading and preparing a bridge laying vehicle and practicing the deployment of its 60 foot scissor-type bridge span.

Designed to quickly move heavy military wheeled and tracked vehicles over unstable or hazardous terrain the AVLB consists of three major sections: the launcher, the vehicle hull, and the bridge. The M60 AVLB or Armored Vehicle Launched Bridge was introduced in 1963.
