Chart of Wreckers

Military wreckers are used for both specific purposes such as vehicle recovery and as general lift capability for whatever is needed. They vary in platform type (truck mounted, tracked) and over a big range of capacity. These wreckers play an important role in military logistics, construction, movement, and maintenance. See also Cranes.
