Hi truelove,

excuse me, please, for my late answer.
Here pics of the four different platoons of the German bridging equipments:
A = light bridging equipment (up to 7 tons), from WWI, replaced by bridging equipment B
B = middle bridging equipment (up to 24 tons)
C = light bridging equipment (up to 4 tons)
K = middle bridging equipment (up to 20 tons)
J = heavy bridging equipment (up to 60 tons).
Besides the German Wehrmacht used the captured bridging equipments of Austria and Czechoslovakia with special platoons.

Regards

Bert
