Description: The Joint Assault Bridge (JAB) is a tracked armored vehicle designed to perform bridge laying missions in support of heavy armored vehicles such as the M1A2 Abrams tank. The JAB will serve in the US Army and US Marine Corps replacing the M60A1 tank based Armored Vehicle Launched Bridge (AVLB) vehicle. The JAB system will be a fully tracked armored engineering vehicle specifically designed to provide Mobility Augmentation Companies with bridging capabilities allowing military vehicles to cross ravines or gorges in combat. It will provide crew with protection and vehicle survivability equal to the M1A1 Abrams tank fleet and have the speed and mobility to keep pace with the maneuver force. The JAB system will launch and recover the US Army's hydraulically actuated Military Load Class Scissor Bridge. The US Army awarded a $26 million development contract for two JAB prototypes to General Dynamics Land Systems in May 2012. The two prototypes will be delivered and combat ready in August 2014.
