The Track Width Mine Plough (TWMP) is produced by RAMTA Aerostructures and Systems Division of Israeli Aircraft Industries Ltd. The plough consists of 2 plough units with separate lifting mechanisms and depth control systems. Each unit operates independently and follows the terrain contours, clearing a path winder than the tank tracks. It can be transferred from one tank to another within one hour.
Ordered by the US Army in 1989 and operated by the Allied forces during Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf.
3 ploughs were acquired and sent to the Danish C-squadron in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the mid 1990s.
