Ukraine will receive a very dangerous modification of the American BMP Bradley

The United States plans to supply Ukraine with about fifty Bradley infantry fighting vehicles of various modifications. These infantry fighting vehicles will complement the French AMR-10RC armored personnel carriers.

In particular, the Ukrainian armed forces will receive the Bradley BMP of the M2A2 modification. The mass of the armored vehicle is an impressive 33 tons, while the BMP-3 weighs only 18,5 tons. Also, American infantry fighting vehicles are reinforced with powerful armor that can withstand shots from a 2 mm 42A30 cannon and RPG-7. In addition, the M2A2s are armed with an M25 2421mm automatic cannon, a 240mm M7,62C machine gun, and two BGM-71 TOW ATGMs.

Along with this, Berlin confirmed the supply of one battery of Patriot air defense systems and BMP Marder to Kyiv in the amount of 30-50 units.

Ukrainians will also receive additional 42 Turkish-made Kipri ​​wheeled armored vehicles. In the summer, an agreement was reached on the shipment of 150 such armored personnel carriers, 50 of which Ukraine already received last year. Turkish combat transport equipment carried out through the territory of Romania.

In total, NATO plans to send about 250-350 MCIs and 200 infantry fighting vehicles of various types to the Ukrainians by the spring of this year, which are necessary for new brigades that are being formed to be sent to various sectors of the front.

    Ukraine will receive ... BMP Bradley

    Here is the answer to the announced Christmas ceasefire.
    Are you saying that tactical nuclear weapons cannot be used to destroy tunnels, bridges, railway junctions?
    Well, well.
    Then wait for tanks, planes, long-range missiles .....

      Is it necessary to strike with tactical nuclear weapons at tunnels, bridges and railway junctions? Any use of nuclear weapons, even tactical ones, is essentially a direct declaration of nuclear war. Wouldn't it be better to strike tunnels, bridges and railway junctions with high-precision missiles?
      If there is talk about the use of tactical nuclear weapons not at the level of couch analysts, then the Russian army has serious problems related to the number of missiles, the number of losses in the war, and perhaps most of the fired missiles are shot down by the Nazams air defense systems delivered to Ukraine, and the Soviet S -300 and Buk.

    And what is the danger? /sincerely perplexed/

    The Soviet ATGMs do not care how many tons were in the piece of iron that they pierced - 5, 18, 32 or 50. Difficulties MAY begin further, but they can also be solved.

    The car is not bad, but you have to watch how it behaves on the fields of real battles. It’s not for you to cut through the warm edges with solid ground. There are off-road conditions and relatively low temperatures. Such cars are good for the Papuans ... to drive. But in reality, a serious rival ... we'll see.

      By the way, the "Papuans" burned a considerable number of these infantry fighting vehicles, on the Internet there are enough photos and videos of material of the damaged and burned Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. So I don’t think that the Marders and Bradleys, together with the wheeled tanks of France (they were generally created for wars with African tribes who had only light small arms) will become a big problem for our soldiers.

        One conclusion from these deliveries of equipment!
        Our army, in fact, is demilitarizing Ukraine, that Bradley infantry fighting vehicles are already being used, a lot of other equipment has been destroyed!
        And naturally, the conflict is dragging on, which plays into the hands of the Americans in an attempt to weaken the Russian Federation! And, in the end, to destroy Our statehood!!!

        For you, sofa-computer warriors, this will not be a big problem! winked

      It depends on the level of training of the team. By the way, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, by the way, even before the start of the NMD, were trained abroad in the operation of Western weapons, otherwise NATO countries would not stuff untrained soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with Western weapons against Russia.

    Since the spring, before partial mobilization, I have been telling you that it is necessary to switch to the use of tactical nuclear weapons and finish the matter with negotiations. The West will cross all red lines in Ukraine

    At this pace, it will soon reach the supply of tanks and aircraft to Ukraine. And there, ATACMS and Tomahawk missiles are just around the corner.

      And who is to blame for this, the West, the Ukrainians? Our government, our president and defense minister are to blame for unleashing a poorly planned military operation, and for not taking into account the scenario for the supply of Western weapons. They cooked up a shitty blitz krieg on their knees, and thought everything would work out, Kyiv would be taken in 3 days.
      In advance, from the first day of the NMD, it was possible to strike at bridges, highways, tunnels, airfields, railway station junctions in the Lvov, Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk, Rivne regions of Ukraine in order to exclude any possibility of supplying Western weapons.

    Deception all around. So you say you are like sofa experts. Yeah right now. Here I am on the sofa. And bed. Tune six. It is on the sofa-bed bridgeheads. And you, in my opinion, are all persons of unclear orientation. Well Bradley. And what. Bradley is a female or male name.

      (Victor) Don't expose your ignorance, Nelson Bradley, an outstanding WWII US commander ..According to the article, deliveries of 50 pieces indicate only testing their weapons against the RF Armed Forces, and no more, too few and too weak for victory. ...

    The Kremlin's Western colleagues note with satisfaction and respond in their own way to his desire for a peaceful deal. bully But the lack of unilateral ceasefires and goodwill steps so far makes it impossible to respond positively to these advances. stop
