M88 Armored Recovery Vehicle Walk Around
The M88 Armored Recovery Vehicle was designed and developed in the late 1950s to handle recovery of the heavier and more massive tanks that were appearing at the time. Armored like a tank and incorporating the suspension and drive train of the M48/M60 tanks, the M88 ARV is equipped with a massive winch and a hydraulically raised A-frame boom with 400 feet of 5/8" wire rope. The M88's original gasoline motor served the vehicle well during its years of duty in Vietnam. In the 1970s.
