LEOPARD ARMOURED RECOVERY VEHICLE MEDIUM (ARVM)


1CSSB ARVM at High Range Training Area Nth QLD

Introduction

These photographs were taken of the ARVM from 1st Combat Service Support Battalion (1CSSB) based in Darwin NT. The last few photos were taken whilst on Exercise at High Range Training Area in 2000. A Mack Truck and Trailer were bogged to the axles and the Recovery Mechanics in the ARVM tried to recover the vehicle with 5t vehicle chains. As the total vehicle weight was way over 5t understandably the chains snapped. The Recovery mechanics then unwound the 60t rated wire rope from the front of the vehicle and easily recovered the vehicles.
