The COBRA Armoured Assault Bridge is a newly developed system destined for medium weight wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles. Based on its special design, the bridge can be modified for the requirements of the customer and the designated carrier vehicle. The COBRA is fully operable under armour.
With the Bridge Launch Mechanism (BLM) from Pearson Engineering, the COBRA can be easily deployed by various multipurpose vehicle platforms. The modular approach of the COBRA allows the operation of this bridge on a temporary (via a Pearson Engineering Jettison Fitting Kit) as well as on a permanent base.
Both the payload and the bridge length can be adapted to the customer requirements and the dedicated carrier vehicle. As for the launching time of the bridge, it varies from 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the carrier vehicle.
