Meng Model 1:35 - Interior Set for M3A3 Bradley w/ Busk III - Plastic model kit #SPS-017

The M3 Bradley is an American cavalry fighting vehicle (CFV) of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle family. It is used by US heavy armoured cavalry units mainly in reconnaissance operations. Similar to the M2 series, the M3 is armed with the 25 mm M242 chain gun and the dual TOW anti-tank missile launcher. The 7.62 mm M240C machine gun is included as secondary armament. Compared to the M2, the M3 is able to carry more TOW missiles and ammunition, although its design lacks firing ports which are present on M2 vehicles. 

The M3A3 is the latest model of the M3 series. It has been improved with more advanced information and communication equipment as well as the commander's independent thermal sights and thicker armour on the roof. Also, the M3A3 has been equipped with the Improved Bradley Acquisition System (IBAS) which allows automatic adjustment of the gun, automatic alignment of the optical sights with the gun barrel and gives the ability to track two targets simultaneously. The M3A3 and other M3 vehicles saw action during the Gulf War in 1990 and the Invasion of Iraq in 2003.

This kit reproduces the interior of the Meng Model M3A3 Bradley BUSK III CVF (SS-006). It includes parts for the driver's, passenger's and turret compartments as well as parts for the engine. The kit contains highly detailed decals and two soft-plastic seat belts. The decals replicate data screens and markings for TOW anti-tank missiles placed inside the vehicle. The instruction with a painting colour reference chart (for Vallejo paints) is also provided.
