I refer to the thread M1A2SEP below (unfortunately I was not able to post there). Is this additional plow unit bolted to the standard mine plow a fitting just to plow the center lane, or is it also to plow deeper or dig up smaller mines then with the standard blade? The way of construction reminds me of the blade used with the dozer of M60/M728 in Gulf War I (wasn´t t from Caterpillar?). I was surprised that no one in the threads asked about this-so is it already a wide spread and usual option for the mine plow that only I did not realize? Any more details about that?
Thank you very much (especially to Gino for the high res pictures !)
Howdy Andreas, the Rake in the center of the TWMP(Track Width Mine Plow)is to deflect any surface laid mines. It has been in service for around 10 years.
