Among the allegedly destroyed Western weapons are four units of the Bradley fighting vehicle.
Russia reported on the destruction of the Bradley fighting vehicle during the war in Ukraine , the transfer of which was recently announced in the White House.
The equipment itself is not in Ukraine yet, but the Russian military allegedly destroyed it. At least, this is stated in the daily summary of the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, Igor Konashenkov.
Among the allegedly destroyed Western weapons are four units of the Bradley fighting vehicle. “In the specified direction, the enemy lost 11 tanks, 17 infantry fighting vehicles, including 4 units of US-made Bradley infantry fighting vehicles,” Konashenkov said.
By the way, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has repeatedly been exposed as lying. For example, not long ago, Shoigu announced an alleged “Retribution” operation for “cotton” at the location of mobs in Makiivka – the occupiers hit the streets of Kramatorsk, claiming to have killed hundreds of “nationalists”. The information was denied by the racist “bloggers” themselves.
In addition, Russia constantly reports the destruction of non-existent elements to HIMARS .
Clowns from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation have already “destroyed” the Bradley BMP
Bradley infantry fighting vehicle for Ukraine – characteristics
The USA and Germany announced a new package of military aid to Ukraine, which will include American M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles . According to available information, Ukraine will receive 50 such armored vehicles.
The Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle is equipped with a 25mm Bushmaster cannon, a 7.62mm machine gun, a TOW rocket launcher and six fixed 5.56mm machine guns in amphibious embrasures.
Since “Bradley” went through many modifications, it is not clear which version Ukraine will receive. Most likely, it will be M2A3 – the so-called “Digital” BMP, a modernized version of American military equipment.
