DA Portrait Bradley

The M2A3 Bradley IFV is an American infantry fighting vehicle in service during the Oil Crisis and the Day of the Consortium.[2]

OverviewEdit

The M2A3 Bradley is the perfect fighting vehicle for hit-and-run attacks on weak enemy positions.

Featuring medium armor, a 25mm Bushmaster cannon, and healthy speed, the Bradley always moves better in groups of three or four. It's also useful for transporting infantry behind enemy lines.

While its gun is not as strong as that of its counterparts, it makes up for a quick rate of fire between reloads. Also, it has a tendency to wound infantry, leaving them vulnerable to capture.

In High Treason, the Bradley can be upgraded to be able to switch between their Bushmaster cannon and TOW guided anti-tank missiles, making them more effective at fighting enemy armor.

Introduced in 2000, the A3 upgrades make the Bradley IFV totally digital and upgrade or improve existing electronics systems throughout improving target acquisition and fire control, navigation, and situational awareness. Also, the survivability of the vehicle is upgraded with a series of armor improvements, again both passive and reactive, as well as improved fire-suppression systems and NBC equipment.

The A3 Bradley incorporates the Improved Bradley Acquisition Subsystem (IBAS) and the Commander’s Independent Viewer (CIV). Both include a second-generation FLIR and an electro-optical/TV imaging system, and the IBAS also has direct-view optics (DVO) and the eye-safe laser rangefinder (ELRF). The CIV allows the commander to scan for targets and maintain situational awareness while remaining under armor and without interfering with the gunner’s acquisition and engagement of targets.
