Yep, I would be interested in one too. Though not sure how correct it would be to have my Jagpanther sitting on it!
what do you mean by 'having your JPanther sitting on it" ?
if for weight, no issue you can have an Elefant on it , (cf armorteks video at bridge launch) also some vids with an Centution on it.
if speaking of size, the former standard kit was a 2 span so 1m long for the bridge, plus 2 0.5m ramps
up to you to see if it is (or not) long enough for you

Didier

Bonsoir Didier, ca va?

What I meant in my post was whether it would be historically accurate to have a Jagdpanther crossing an Allied Forces bridge when the Pz. Abt 654 were in retreat via Bourgtheroulde and Rouen. Obviously, the Armortek kit can take the weight. My comment was simply un blague Anglais!

Bon soiree,

Cordialement,

Metal is allways good you could allways use the self stick flooring slats for boards over them they don't scuff . The only reason I received a minor scolding and no seconds at dinner when the wife caught me putting a dirt bike engine on the floor when making room in my garage.....now that I think about it you can park an Abrams tank on that stuff....can you do that tank after next run or 2?

I would be also interested

What span options would be available?

I would like to build a 4 span tripple.

Will the tripple span be a possible option?

Thank you
When we first launched we sold the single, double and triple - but we soon found that stocking keeping and packing was an issue with so many combinations - especially when it came to packing all the fasteners.

We will pack the bridge as a double (that means two panels on each side) to keep our workload manageable - but if someone wants to turn the bridge into a triple, we could provide the remaining parts as spare parts.

Once we have all of our costings in, we will have more information on pricing in September.

Hi All,

A few pics of our Bailey Bridge. Good idea from Armortek to do a re run of it.

Kind regards Kees

How many spans is that picture with the furry tank dog?

How many spans can be used together safely?

Hi Brain,

Good question, no answer to that. How many span can be used safely.
On the Pic with the Furry Tank Dog it is a two span double panel and double panel height.
This is the middle section of a 6 span double panel. Unfortunately no pics of the total bridge.
Between the two ramps we planned to have a least 6 spans. Hope to try this next major event in Holland.

kind regards kees

The most we have had connected together is 4 spans. We supported them at either end. We then loaded them with 2 Elefants and an 80kg person and the deflection at the central point was around 1mm.
