Rakkasan Soldier recovers ‘unrecoverable’ vehicle

 

Written by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C. Powell, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division Patch187th Infantry Regiment - Iron RakkasansPaktya Province, Afghanistan – Mountainous terrain, narrow passes, loose gravel and winding roads spell certain danger for U.S. and coalition forces here who must navigate them with a variety of vehicles and equipment.

When a 40,000-pound mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle and its onboard equipment, which cost nearly $300,000, recently tumbled down a steep mountainside lodging between a large boulder and a huge rock-formation, recovering it seemed nearly impossible.

In fact, three wreckers were taken to the scene in an attempt to retrieve the vehicle. Ultimately, all three were not only unsuccessful, but each piece of equipment broke during the recovery process.

A vehicle recovery crew from Company B, 626th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division adjusts the cabling and ropes connecting their wrecker to a mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle that had rolled off a steep mountain pass and lodged against a rock formation approximately 50-feet below. The recovery took the team four-days.  (Photo courtesy of the U.S. Army)
