FACT & THOUGHTS
The M88 is a Bergepanzer as well; the Germans used the M88A1 in the same way that the Americans did, and they also used the 1G bergepanzer chassis. I love the bergepanzer and bergepanther, and Oshkosh appears to be gaining a reputation for unreliability, according to US marines on the force’s television channel.
