M113 AVLB?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

It didn't work well enough for large-scale production, apparently. Hunnicutt mentions that the bridge itself weighed 2700 lbs, could be emplaced in two minutes while the crew remained under armor, and the track retained its amphibious capability with the bridge stowed.

It might well have floated, but Man!..that's a lot of weight up high...I wonder how stable that was in the water?

I never saw one of these anywhere before. 2,700 lb's is lighter than I would have thought it'd be...

That variant didn't float - there was a variation on the design that oncorporated two large 'flotation aids' on the front that floated - just..

There was also a version that had the laid the bridge over the rear of the vehicle.
