M2A2 Bradley Irak 2003
Introduced in 1988, the M2A2 received an upgraded 600hp engine with a HMPT-500-3 hydromechanical transmission and upgraded armor (both passive and the ability to fit explosive reactive armor). The new armor protects the Bradley from 30mm APDS shells and RPGs (or similar anti-tank weapons). The new armor also eliminated the trim tab that made the Bradley amphibious and covered the side firing ports. Laminate armor was added to the rear of the hull, and laminate rail skirts protected the lower hull. A semi-circular shield was added to the rear of the turret to provide more storage space and act as spaced armor. Kevlar spall liners have been added in critical areas. The number of infantrymen was reduced to six, eliminating the periscope position behind the driver.
