The M2 Bradley, or Bradley IFV, is an American infantry fighting vehicle that is a member of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle family. The Bradley is highly capable in cross-country open terrain and fairly maneuverable. It’s designed for reconnaissance and to transport a squad of infantry, providing them protection from small arms fire.
The Bradley is equipped with the M242 25 mm autocannon, the M240C 7.62 mm machine gun and the TOW anti-tank missile system. All versions are equipped with two four-barreled smoke grenade launchers on the front of the turret.
The vehicle entered service with the U.S. Army in 1981, and 4,641 M2 variants have been produced since.
