Two Military Recovery Vehicles compete against each other . This one is called Bison and is only since 2012 for the Bundeswehr in use . The other is the Buffalo armored recovery vehicle as has already 20 years of service under his belt . Which of the two vehicles is stronger? A not taken too seriously showdown of two steel force limbers .
The Bergepanzer 3 Buffel (Buffalo) armored recovery vehicle was developed by Rheinmetall. It is based on the Leopard 2 chassis and is fitted with powerful recovery system. With introduction of the Leopard 2 main battle tank in 1979 it appeared that the previous Bergepanzer 2A2, based on the Leopard 1 MBT chassis, was not powerful enough to support the new main battle tank. A development program for a new armored recovery vehicle was launched. The first prototypes of the Bergepanzer 3 were completed in 1988. Deliveries of the new ARV commenced in the early 90s.
