The Horatio Bridgelayer is a commission ( one of three so far...)by Steven Satak for his Battletech TRO project.

I decided to show the vehicle with and without the bridge so it's hull details could be seen and yet I could show off how the whole combo looks. The stats required that the vehicle be based on the classic "Galleon" tank, so the headlamps, roadwheels, sponson guns, hatch style and hull details follow that pattern.
The bridgelayer is otherwise much like modern tank based bridgelayers, and uses a "scissors" type folding bridge.
It also has a small troop bay in the rear that can carry a group of infantry or combat engineers, a rather unique feature, something that might be useful.
And, being a "Lee Madison artpiece", it features two cute female vehicle troopers...though very much toned down for the original draft at the request of Mr. Satak.
Personally, I'd love to have a set of these as gaming miniatures for my microscale SF army.
