Are you building a nation specific ORBAT? Or did you pick/paint them "randomly"?

Brutzel,
Nice video, thank you for posting the link.
Does the Boxer Cobra once crossing over, can it life the bridge from the other side? Does the far end always fold up and over?
It appears the long section is about 2/3 of the entire length of the expanded bridge. Is each end able to be folded up?
Thank you.
Chris

Hello chrisswim, unfortunately I have hardly any more information. On the Internet you can find little about the Boxer Cobra bridge layer at the moment. Here are two links to the vehicle. There should be two versions. One with 15 meters and one with 22 meters. The short version is the one from the other posting. I think that after driving over you can resume the bridge on the other side. If you watch the video closely, you'll notice that the bridge on the other side also has a dock point.

15m version:

22m version:

Google can have the text translated.

Hi Chris, I found another Boxer module. The Recovery Module.
The two articles are from 2019. GHQ could expand its "what if" line with modern vehicles. Vehicles that are offered by companies and may not always be produced. However, these vehicles may be well integrated into their own GHQ armed forces. Is there a market for it? GHQ also produces vehicles that were perhaps only 8 times in an army.

Good find Brutzel.
I guess the crane could pull itself off the Boxer hull.
Thank you.

Today I dealt with the Boxer Recovery Module and rebuilt a GHQ Boxer.
