US Army Conducts Testing on Armoured Recovery Vehicles

The US military is testing two M88A3 Hercules model vehicles, evaluating various aspects including lifting and winching capabilities, with simulated loads weighing approximately 80 tonnes.

The M88A3 Hercules was unveiled in 2018, aiming to surpass its predecessor, the M882, by offering improved performance, particularly in rescuing heavier modern tanks such as the M1A2 Abrams SEP v.3, without the need for assistance from a second vehicle.

The M88A3 Hercules is the latest iteration in the M88 armoured recovery vehicle series developed by BAE Systems for the US Army, enhancing its performance and survivability through various upgrades, including a modern transmission system and hydraulic-air suspension units to enhance mobility and recovery capabilities.
