[Watch] Indian Army Corps of Engineers’ troops demonstrate how the new 10 meter Short Span Bridging system will help tanks, infantry combat vehicles during operations


This 10 meter short-span bridging system will help the Indian army in geographical constraints like small rivers and canals.

The Indian Army has got 12 indigenously developed short span bridging systems (SSBS)-10, designed and developed by Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO). This short-span bridging system will help the Indian army in geographical constraints like small rivers and canals. These 12 bridging systems will be operating on the western borders with Pakistan. The cost of developing these first-ever 12 indigenous short-span bridging systems is around Rs 492 crore. According to reports, any obstacle can be removed through the shot bridging system. It is capable of carrying up to 70 tonnes of water. This system multiplies the existing bridging capability of the Corps of Engineers.

Here is the video of the Indian Army Corps of Engineers’ troops demonstrating how the new 10-meter short span bridging system will help:

This short span bridging system was developed using two prototypes of 5 m SSBS on Tatra 6×6 chassis and another two prototypes of 10 m SSBS on Tatra 8×8 re-engineered chassis. Both the systems have undergone rigorous DGQA, MET, and User trials. This system will help in the quick movement of troops and enhance the mobilization of resources.

DRDO (Defence Research Development Organisation) who developed the system has vast experience in developing critical Combat Engineering Systems like Military Bridging Systems. Earlier, a manually launched 34.5 m Mountain Foot Bridge was also developed by DRDO.

These 12 bridges are a part of 102 nos of SSBS-10 m from M/s L&T Ltd, which is the production agency. The Defence Minister of India Rajnath Singh has congratulated the DRDO, Indian Army, and Industry on the successful development of the system. He stated that this induction will give a boost to the fast-growing Indian defense industrial ecosystem and help the industry to contribute towards “Atmanirbhar Bharat”.
