Photo Of The Day and we have a very smoky shot of an Army M2A3 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle as it fires its main gun, the 25mm M242 chain gun. The Bradley carries 900 rounds for it. It also has a coaxially mounted M240C machine gun with 2,200 rounds of 7.62 NATO. The A3 version also has a totally digital electronics system for target acquisition and fire control, navigation, and other situational awareness. This includes a thermal-aided target tracker from FLIR to aid the anti-tank TOW missiles.
This photo was taken in Niinisalo, Finland, in July 2022. This M2A3 Bradley is assigned to the 4th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, which is among the units assigned to the 1st Infantry Division. The Army works alongside NATO allies and regional security partners to provide combat-credible forces to V Corps, the United States forward-deployed corps in Europe.
We’ll be back tomorrow with another interesting set photo.
