Bradley M2A1 AIFV Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle
M2A1 Bradley AIFV (Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle) was introduced
in the U.S. Army in 1986, it's a further development of the standard
vehicle Bradley M2. The vehicle entered production in 1985 with first
delivery in 1986. By 1992, the M2A1s had begun being remanufactured
to upgraded standards M2A2. The M2A1 Bradley IFV's only difference with
the M2 Bradley IFV is an improved ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile) launcher,
with greater accuracy and new sight system; there are also some new
equipment for the crew and infantry soldiers. (All pictures Photo courtesy
