Feb. 2 (UPI) -- An unidentified country in Southeast Asia has ordered an M3 Amphibious Bridge and Ferry System from General Dynamics European Land Systems.
The M3 system is used by NATO and non-NATO nations in a variety of roles, including combat operations and civil defense.
"The award of the contract once again underlines the quality and superior performance of General Dynamics European Land Systems' mobile bridge systems and the high reputation our company and products have in the defense market as the most modern and most powerful amphibious bridge and ferry system," said Dr. Thomas Kauffmann, vice president of the company's International Business & Services unit.
The M3 Amphibious Bridge and Ferry System can carry payloads of up to MLC85 tracked vehicles and MLC132 wheeled vehicles and can build a 330-foot floating bridge in less than 10 minutes.
General Dynamics European Land Systems, headquartered in Madrid, Spain, is a business unit of General Dynamics.
