M88 ARMORED RECOVERY VEHICLE
TANKOGRAD AMERICAN SPECIAL N.14
Serie dedicata alla storia e allo sviluppo degli automezzi americani dalla fine del secondo conflitto mondiale ad oggi.
The Recovery Vehicle, Full-Tracked, Medium, M88 ARV was introduced from 1960 and since then formes the backbone of heavy recovery operations within the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. Several attempts have been made to replace it, without any success yet. The M88 was modernized to the M88A1 and stays in service up till today with its most modern version, the M88A2 HERCULES heavy armoured recovery vehicle. This publication decribes the development history and variants of the M88 family, from the early days in U.S. service to modern day's Operation Iraqi Freedom, with comprehensive text and many hitherto unpublished photographs including detailed walkarounds. Added to the U.S. history is the use of the M88 and its variants in foreign armies.
