BAE Systems to transform US Army’s Bradley M3 vehicles to M2
The US Army has contracted BAE Systems to transform Bradley M3 vehicles to M2, with a cost of USD25.3 mil. The company was the only one to submit an offer for the firm, fixed-price contract. Work will be undertaken at the York, PA, factory. Its completion is planned for 30 March 2018.

The programme will result in the transformation of 43 Bradley M3s to M2 IFVs, and of 13 M3 Operation Desert Storm – Situational Awareness to M2 ODS-SA standard. The decision is the result of the Army’s effort to sustain its infantry fighting vehicles fleet after the cancellation of the Ground Combat Vehicle programme.

The M3 is a scout version carrying the crew plus two scouts, while the M2 is the IFV carrying the crew plus six infantry soldiers. The ODS-SA versions have a Beyond Line-of-Sight network capability due to the digital satellite communications package and digital architecture. In addition, they feature an improved armour protection, which can be further upgraded depending on the mission.
