Meet M88A2 HERCULES is an armored recovery vehicle that is employed for rescue and recovery missions in a battlefield.
The vehicle was designed and manufactured by Bowen McLaughlin-York (BMY) and using its towing, winching and recovery capabilities the M88A2 vehicle can winch as heavyweight vehicles as M1A1/2 Abrams tanks out of the war zone!
The $2M M88A2 has a long 35t boom, and 140,000lb constant pull main winch that allows superior and easier winching ability. The vehicle is also equipped with 280ft cable and an auxiliary 3t winch and has an XT-1410-5A cross-drive transmission working three-speed forward, one- speed reverse gear.
