Hi all,

According to photo caption a Hungarian 33M pontoon bridge ?
I have not could find any information on the net about Hungarian bridge equipment ...

Is this correct ?

Hi Sturm 78,

Yes, that´s correct. This bridge building material out of iron was introduced in Hungary 1933, so the designation 33M.
It had a load limit from 8 to 12 tons. Here three pics of this Hungarian bridgebuilding material.

Best regards

Bert

Thank you very much for your information and aditional images, Bert... :)

Here, another image of a Hungarian pontoon equipment. The Turan tank had a weight of around 18ton so I supposse that this is a different model of bridge equipment....althought I would say that seems very similar...

Hi Sturm 78,

thanks a lot for this very interesting pic. I think You are right, that this could be a increased-strengthened version of the bridge building material 33 M. I´m sorry, but I have no pic and no information about this.

Best regards

Bert

Hi all,

An image from Ebay. I think a rare Herbert-Gerät bridge.
Does somebody know how this bridge was transported and assembled ? I think the pontoons seems too large for field transport
