Forces of Valor 80002 US M2A2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle - 24th Infantry Division [Mechanized], Kuwait, 1991 (1:32 Scale)

"We're going to cut off their head, then we're going to kill 'em."
- General Norman Schwarzkopf discussing plans for Operation: Desert Storm, January 1991

The M2 Bradley is the US Army's first mechanized infantry combat vehicle. The first production models appeared in 1981 (at the height of the Cold War), and they were soon being produced at the rate of 600 per year. The hull of the M2 is made of aluminum, with a layer of space laminated armor applied for added protection. The Bradley is equipped with a 25mm Bushmaster cannon and stabilizer to allow for firing on the move. Its troop compartment, located in the rear, is fitted with firing ports and periscopes to allow troops to fire from within the vehicle. Night vision capability and a nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) defense system are standard on all of the different variants. The Bradley plays a key role in the US Army's combined arms concept, but critics say it is too big, too expensive, and too difficult to maintain and is insufficiently armored to operate with main battle tanks on the battlefield.

This particular 1:32 scale replica of a US M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle is fitted with a fold-down TOW-2 missile launcher and painted in a stunning desert camouflage pattern used during Operation: Desert Storm. Also features a drop down rear ramp, a fully detailed passenger compartment, and opening hatches. Now in stock!

Historical Account: "The Greatest Cavalry Charge in History" - The 24th Infantry Division [Mech], the heavy element of the XVIII Airborne Corp, wears three Bronze Battle Star on its Southwest Asia Service Medal denoting participation in all three major campaigns; Defense of Saudi Arabia August 2nd, 1990 - January 6th, 1991, Liberation and Defense of Kuwait January 17th, 1991 - April 11th, 1991, and Southwest Asia Cease-fire April 12th, 1991 - November 30th, 1995. The Division spearheaded the Allied Coalition Forces' attack into Iraq. In 100 hours the mechanized division's 370 kilometer lightning fast attack deep into, through, and encircling, enemy positions severed the enemy's lines of communications through the Euphrates River Valley and shut down his escape routes. The 24th [Mech] drove faster, farther, and with more firepower than General George S. Patton's entire 3rd Army stormed across France. The Division's attack has been called, "The Greatest Cavalry Charge in History".
