Academy 1/35 M2A2 Bradley Iraq 2003 Model Kit
Model Number: 13205
The Academy 1/35 M2A2 Bradley Iraq 2003 is a plastic model kit in the Academy Military Plastic Model range.
The M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle is a light armoured 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 armoured 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 litres). 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 aluminium armour, and the rear and sides are also covered with spaced laminate armour. The turret has an additional layer of steel, and the hull bottom has additional anti-mine armour.
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 applique steel armour 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.
