Description: The armored, fully tracked M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle has been designed to provide mobile protected transport to an infantry squad within the battlefield. In addition the M2 also provides fire support to dismounted troops and anti-tank/anti-bunker capability through its 2 turret mounted TOW missiles.

Typically the Bradley armored vehicles complement the Abrams main battle tanks. The M2 Bradley turret-mounted armament consists of a M242 25mm Bushmaster gun, a M240C 7.62mm machine gun and 2 anti-tank TOW missiles mounted in the turret left side. The M242 gun has a maximum range of 2,000 and can fire different ammunition specially developed for every mission profile. Typically, the Bushmaster gun fires 25mm M793 cartridges and M793 TP-T (target practice-traced) and M910TPDS-T (target practice discarding sabot-traced) cartridges. The TOW missile provides an engagement range of about 4 km.

The Bradley fighting vehicles are powered by a single turbo-diesel engine rated at 600-hp. It features high mobility, amphibious capability, and a maximum road speed of 72 km/h. The Bradley also has improved armor, mobility and survivability than its predecessor the M113.

The M2A2 is the main model of the Bradley fighting vehicle featuring a crew of 3-man (commander, driver and gunner) and a 6-man squad in the rear compartment. The early M2A0 and M2A1 have been upgraded to the current M2A2 configuration. The Bradley achieved the Initial operational capability (IOC) in 1981 and was combat-proven during the Gulf War in 1991.
