The Bradley was developed largely in response to the Soviet BMP infantry fighting vehicles, and to combine the roles of both APC and fighting vehicle. The M2 Bradley was the standard infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), while the M3 Bradley Cavalry Fighting vehicle (CFV) was designed for use in the Armoured cavalry Regiments. The two vehicles looked very similar with the main visual difference being the design of the crew hatch on the rear hull roof.
The model comprises 5 parts (hull is cast in polyurethane resin, other parts in white metal) and some assembly is required. Hatches for both the M2 and M3 versions are supplied.
