Zvezda 1/100 US M2A2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle Kit
The Bradley Fighting Vehicle (or BFV) was named for the United State’s European Field Commander during World War II, Omar Bradley. It was developed as a response to the Soviet BMP series, and was intended as a troop transport and scout vehicle.

The vehicle mounted a 25mm chain gun and twin launchers designed to fire wire-guided TOW anti-tank missiles. A 7.62mm machine gun rounded out the vehicle’s armament. The Bradley used aluminum armor, reinforced with steel skirts and laminate belts for protection. It has a crew of three and can transport up to six soldiers and gear.

When the U.S. developed the BFV, it needed to have good maneuverability cross-country and enough speed to maintain formations with the new Abrams tanks, while providing protection and fire support for a squad of infantry. The competing needs of the design led to numerous development delays and cost overruns. As a result, the BFV did not enter use until 1981, almost 20 years after design work began.
