What are engineers for? Good question. I've always found they make quite good door stops, or if you roll one up it makes a nice draft excluder!

In all seriousness, the engineers have more important things to do then replace every bridge in theatre because our IFV's happen to be 5 tons too heavy.

5 tons over the limits wouldn't really matter

That reqirement has been dropped.

It was not (surprise, surprise) considered feasible.
I haven't heard anything about this
The entire point of the IBCT is to go anywhere in the world in under 96 hours.
Heard it at tanknet, from a guy who is an AT platoon leader in the Stryker brigade. He was missing his tank.
