How do you get multiple military vehicles across a river without a bridge? You build a floating platform using amphibious rigs, as demonstrated during an exercise in Romania.
More than 8,000 soldiers from six NATO Allied and partner nations are taking part in an exercise that spans across Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania. Saber Guardian 2019 is co-led by Romanian Land Forces and U.S. Army Europe. The exercise included a range of activities designed to improve the integration of multinational forces. Countries taking part include Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, and the United States. Saber Guardian 2019 runs from 3 until 24 June.
This footage includes shots of amphibious rigs being used to make a floating bridge. Plus, video of various Romanian and US military vehicles making the crossing.
