Meng Model 1:35 - US M2A3 Bradley with Busk III IFV (Full Interior) - Plastic model kit #SS-004

The M2A3 Bradley is an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) that belongs to the Bradley Fighting Vehicle family. Derived from the M2 Bradely series, the M2A3 features a number of upgrades concerning both electronics and fire-suppression systems, armour, target detection, fire control and navigation. The vehicle is also equipped with the Bradley Urban Survivability Kit III (BUSK III) and the Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2) system. The BUSK III protects the optics from scratches, provides insulation from electricity and includes additional armour. The FBCB2 allows tracking of friendly and enemy forces on the battlefield.

The M2A3 Bradley is intended to perform both reconnaissance and operations requiring a high degree of manoeuvrability and protect the crew from small arms fire. Its armament includes a 25 mm M242 Bushmaster chain gun, a 7.62 mm M240C machine gun and an anti-tank missile launcher.

Due to its upgraded equipment and high survivability rate, the M2A3 Bradley is considered the most advanced infantry fighting vehicle of the US Army. It was widely deployed by American troops during the Iraq War between 2003 and 2011.
