Stealth is one of the most important conditions for the successful conduct of hostilities. Collapsible road bridges made of composite materials will soon be added to Russian combat aircraft and stealth ships.
According to Deputy Defense Minister Dmitry Bulgakov, they are being developed by the military department, enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex and specialists from the MTO academy. According to him, stealth for detection means is not the only advantage of collapsible bridges. In addition, they are much lighter, more durable, have a higher load capacity, span length and are easier to assemble.
It should be noted that the development of new generation bridges is carried out without additional attraction of budget funds.
