The M2 Bradley, also known as the Bradley IFV, was designed and manufactured by BAE Systems Land & Armaments (formerly known as United Defense). It is a U.S. infantry fighting vehicle designed for reconnaissance and maneuverability. This vehicle was named after WWII General Omar Bradley, and entered service with the U.S. Army in 1981. The M2 Bradley's main armament is a 25mm M242 Chain Gun, which can fire up to 200 rounds per minute. This weapon has an accuracy of up to 2,500 m, depending on the ammunition. The M2 Bradley saw action during the Gulf War, where it wiped out more Iraqi tanks than the M1 Abrams. The M2 Bradley was also deployed during the Iraq War. It was in this war when the M2 Bradleys showed a slight vulnerability to IEDs -- or Improvised Explosive Devices -- as well as rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs).
