I wouldn't even mount that.  Where do you put it?  You don't put it on
top, 'coz the verdammt bridge is on top.  Who fires it?  No one has a
spare hand to fire it.

I cringe every time those two are stuck together.  Let me suggest:

ARV (Armored Recovery Vehicle):  Dependant on size class of vehicle
1: 5
2: 10
3: 15
4: 20
5: 25

IOW, to recover a LAV (size 2) you can use a dedicated LAV variant.  To
recover a Main Battle Tank,  (size 4) you need a dedicated MBT variant.

Combat Engineer Vehicle: I split this out by function.	
Mine Dection/Removal
Digging/Construction (Scoop arm and dozer blade for digging fighting

Let me suggest, as a working concept
Demo: 6
Mine Detection: 2
Mine Removal:3

Of course, then we have to work up points costs for each of these
capabilities seperately.
