Sweden to receive additional amphibious bridge systems M3 from General Dynamics European Land Systems

Kaiserslautern, March 14, 2024 – On March 5, the Swedish procurement agency Försvarets Materielverk (FMV) ordered the delivery of additional M3 amphibious bridge and ferry systems from General Dynamics European Land Systems–Bridge Systems. By receiving this third batch of the M3 in its latest version, the new NATO member will further strengthen its and NATO’s gap crossing capabilities.

The amphibious bridge and ferry system M3 is the fastest available means for wet gap crossing within NATO. It can be used as a floating bridge or ferry to carry even the heaviest main battle tanks to negotiate wide wet gaps. The all-terrain M3 is ready for use within minutes – a vital factor on today’s transparent battlefield. The system has proven itself in use under a wide range of climatic and topographical conditions.
