The M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle is a light armored personnel vehicle that is
designed to be fast. The standard 24.9-ton Bradley is powered by a 500-horsepower,
supercharged, eight-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine, giving it enough power to
keep up with other armored vehicles like the M1 Abrams tanks. With a power-to-weight
ratio of 20 horsepower per ton, the Bradley can reach a top speed of 40 miles per hour
(64.4 kph) on paved roads. In comparison, the M1 Abrams tank is powered by a
1,500-horsepower engine and travels at 30 mph (48.3 kph). The Bradley models have
a fuel capacity of between 175 gallons and 197 gallons (662-746 liters). The Bradley is
designed to cross any terrain, even water, and can transition to amphibious mode in
five minutes. The tracks propel the Bradley through the water at a top speed of about
4 mph (6.4 km/hr).

The M2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle has a three-man crew, including a commander,
gunner and driver. The original M2 also carries seven, fully equipped soldiers.
The enhanced M2A2 carries six soldiers. The Bradley is equipped with an
automatic fire detection and suppression system, which is also included in the
engine compartment, as well as a central nuclear, biological and chemical
protective suite. The entire Bradley is covered with aluminum armor, and the
rear and sides are also covered with spaced laminate armor. The turret has an
additional layer of steel, and the hull bottom has additional anti-mine armor.

The Bradley is a formidable vehicle: It packs a powerful punch with its
high-powered machine guns and anti-tank missiles. These armaments are
used to provide protective fire for the troops it transports, as well as to
suppress and destroy enemy tanks. Combined with its speed and agility,
the Bradley is well equipped to combat enemy vehicles. For additional
protection from ballistic ammunition, additional appliqu?steel armor has been
added to the M2A2 Bradley.
Explosive reactive armor increases protection from shaped charge weapon
systems. With the latest supplementary armor, the M2A2 Bradley Fighting
Vehicles continue to achieve many military successes in the Iraqi War.
