Description: The M104 Wolverine is a heavy assault bridge designed to support the US Army's M1 Abrams heavy armor tanks during military operations. General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) developed the Wolverine based on the M1A2 SEP heavyweight tank as a replacement for the US Army's M60 AVLB. The AVLBs are too slow and can not keep the pace and their bridge is not well prepared for the heavyweight Abrams tanks that the US Army planned a replacement in the 1990s. The first M104 Wolverine entered service in 2003. The US Army plan called for the procurement of 456 such vehicles but the program was slashed to 44 units. The Wolverine is unarmed and includes a comprehensive communications suite and the proven Leguan bridge laying system from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW). The crew can lay and recover the bridge and conduct any other operation safely under armor.
