Crossing water has always been a problem that needs to be addressed on any battlefield. Here is a page dedicated to the ways multiple countries address this problem.
These boats are the bulldozers of the water. They can turn on a dime and align a bridge section like nobody's business.

Emplacement Excavator (SEE)
(Description from GlobalSecurity.Org) The Small Emplacement Excavator (SEE) is a lightweight, all-wheel-drive, diesel-engine-driven, high-mobility vehicle with a backhoe, a bucket loader, and other attachments such as a handheld hydraulic rock drill, a chain saw, and a pavement breaker. The SEE weighs over 16,000 pounds, is air transportable, can travel at speeds of more than 40 miles per hour on improved roads, and has limited off-road mobility. The SEE is used to rapidly dig combat emplacements such as crew-served weapon positions, command posts, and individual fighting positions. The high mobility of the SEE provides an earthmoving machine capable of rapid movement between battle positions.
