Vietnam becomes the second user of these systems after Poland, where 12 of these bridges are already in operation in the engineering troops. These vehicles have been adapted to the buyer's requirements in terms of local climatic conditions. As a result, electronic systems, hydraulics and corrosion protection have been changed. They were also painted with a special paint adapted to the local climate.
The four mechanized bridges are now getting prepared for the final tests in order to officially take them into use and then put them into operation. OBRUM engineers are currently training a group of the first 20 operators of these systems.
