Abstract:

The Marine Corps has an urgent requirement for a multipurpose military load class MLC 70, C130 air-transportable trailer-launched bridge TLB capable of crossing gaps up to 22 meters in width. The TLB will complement the 19-meter MLC 60 armored vehicle-launched bridge AVLB and medium girder bridge MGB in providing sufficient combat support and service support bridging capabilities to the Marine air ground task force MAGTF at natural gaps and at damaged or destroyed bridges along main supply routes. For cross-country transportation and employment, the TLB will be towed by combat vehicles such as an AVLB, combat excavator, tank retriever, the battle tank M60 or M1, and the logistics vehicle system LVS MK4814. The TLB will be organic to the combat engineer battalion, Marine division, and engineer support battalion of the force service support group FSSG.
