M88A2 Hercules

In 1981, a study was conducted by the U.S. ground forces that defined the requirements for a rescue vehicle that would be able to provide adequate support to the newly introduced M1 Abrams tanks on the battlefield. It was clear that the rescue tank M88A1, standardly introduced in the US Army, is not such a means.

Patton tanks - Special versions

For decades, the M47 / M48 / M60 Patton tanks formed the backbone of the armed forces of the United States and other countries around the world. However, the operation of tank units requires a number of support vehicles. With the gradual replacement of older versions, loose chassis were used to build similar vehicles.
