c0mb@t engnr tr@ctor

Q: What do you use to dig a hole in enemy territory?
A: A Combat Engineer Tractor FV180.

This device is packed full of ingenious goodies, e.g. can't find a strong tree for recovery purposes? No problem, use the rocket launched, ground anchor. The Combat Engineer Tractor can also swim, when fitted with buoyancy aids (floaties). Propulsion in the water comes from two water jets.
