The main problem I have is the weight that the Pneumatic system will lift( while keeping to the KISS Principe) , I used a Pneumatic system because the LA's course more problems then the solve (Like clutch slippage ) when using 2 or more

The main lifting arm is worm / turntable drive ( I got the idea from Stilzkin Bridge Launcher http://www.flickr.com/photos/28134808@N02/sets/72157623947590701/) and it will lift a longer bridge

KISS = Keep It Simple Stupid

After watching some video's of bridge layers in action, I am working on a whole new bridge and launching system that hopefully will allow to launch much larger bridge's . so far it works in theory and the prototype works

Giving up Bridge layer Mk 2 for the present, Hit the old problem of weight.
The theory - great
The piratical - works (small scale)
Weight - bad
