Abstract:

Self-recovery anchor capstan kits were developed for the M151 and M35 military tactical wheeled vehicles. The kits consist of wheel-adaptors, wheel capstans, plastic fiber rope, and earth anchor. The kits are employed, in lieu of conventional vehicle winches, to recover the immobilized vehicle. The kits have these advantages They are simple and thus likely to be available in working condition when needed application of towing forces is lower and will usually have an upward component which lifts the vehicle and self-emplacing anchor is included.
