Historical Reference

The predecessor of engineering vehicles, developed on the basis of the American M48 post-war medium tank. Equipped with the M8A1 dozer blade, these vehicles entered service in Bundeswehr engineering units and were used until the late 1990s in territorial forces, but with demounted guns. A total of 53 vehicles saw service in Bundeswehr.
