Should be as simple as a winch from a well spaded piece of equipment. Believe we can make some assumptions and lay out some facts.
Fact- Water has a mire factor of one, until you break the surface, and remains one if the cab or components don't hold water. Factor the take on weight at 8 lbs per gallon in hull. Factoid. Use a winch the @ weight of the disabled vehicle or stronger. That way the cable won't break. Whiplash cable is like a sword.
Mud to mid rollers is a mire factor one. @ 50K winch will do. Mud to top of tracks is mire factor two. (100K) use 2:1 snatch block back to winching vehicle. Mud up to turbo is mire three. (150K) Use two blocks. Most winches afford use of only one snatch block, because it requires too much cable, or you have to be too close to disabled vehicle. Also factor a 10% loss of winch strength for each snatch block used, due to friction.
Fact: Recovering by pulling backward saves up to 20%. Fact, if she runs, spinning the track will normall provide 50% weight reduction or more. Funny things: 1-Nothing makes recovery easier than draining the mire pit. 2-You are sometimes not as stuck as you think. 3-And after doing this for 30 years in the active army, anything can be recovered, if you are willing to used the right tools and take the needed time.
