 +Self-recovery anchor capstan kits were developed for the M151 and M35 military tactical wheeled vehicles. The kits consisted of wheel-adaptors, wheel capstans, plastic fiber rope, and an earth anchor.
 +The kits were employed, in lieu of conventional vehicle winches, to recover the immobilized vehicle. The kits had these advantages: they were simple and thus likely to be available in working condition when needed; application of towing forces was lower and would usually have an upward component which lifted the vehicle; and a self-emplacing anchor was included.
