About the M2A3 Bradley IFV
Named after the WWII commander, General Omar Bradley, the M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) originally entered U.S. Army service in 1981. It largely came about as a response to the Soviet Union's BMP, and was designed as both an APC and a tank-killer. The Bradley is able to keep pace with the M1 Abrams, and it is armed with a 25mm Bushmaster cannon and a coaxial 7.62mm M240C machine gun, as well as a pair of TOW missile launchers. The Bradley has served with distinction in combat in the 1991 Gulf War, as well as in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003 onwards, where it has proved remarkably survivable.
Dragon has introduced a 1/72 scale model kit of the very latest version of the Bradley - the M2A3. This particular upgraded version appeared in 2000, and the vehicle's systems are now totally digitized, with improved fire control, target acquisition, navigation and situational awareness capabilities. Visually, the M2A3 is easily identifiable by its distinctive Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) mounted on the right side of the turret. All the unique features of the M2A3 are present on this fine new model from Dragon (e.g. CITV, additional armor, GPS antenna, EPLR antenna), creating an extremely accurate replica of the original vehicle. A number of opening parts such as the rear ramp and "doghouse" door provide modelers with extra options. The model also incorporates items like convenient DS tracks and refined photo-etched components for the ERA mounting frames. The M2A3 Bradley is the USA's premier IFV for the 21st century, and with Dragon's new release, modelers will be ready for action in any theater of war whether in Iraq or elsewhere around the world!
