According to the portal breakingdefense.com, at AUSA 2017, held this week in Washington, BAE Systems presented a new modification of the M2 Bradley combat vehicle equipped with an air defense system.


The new “Bradley” has not yet received an official name, so it was presented at the exhibition as M2 Bradley SHORAD (Short-Range Air Defense). At the same time, in BAE Systems, the new combat vehicle is unofficially called the “MiG killer”.

BAE Systems presented a new modification of the BMN M2 Bradley


The M2 Bradley air defense system is equipped with three types of weapons at once, providing comprehensive protection against air threats.

For disabling small UAVs, the car is equipped with an electronic jamming system. To hit helicopters and low-flying aircraft designed guided missiles. The third level of protection is the 30-mm cannon, firing air exploded projectiles.

The M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was commissioned by the American army back in 1981 year. According to the 2016 year, the order 10 000 BMD Bradley in various versions, and also created specialized machines based on them, transmits "Warspot".

      It is better to make a full-fledged infantry fighting vehicle and a full-fledged mobile shell-type air defense system. And so - neither this nor that.

          Wow! So the BMP on the combined arms battlefield has no more problems than the MiGs, and everything else is garbage? request I wish the crews of these vehicles NEVER see the MIGs, but look at the battlefield ... LOOK ATTENTIVELY !!! There, besides the MIGs, there will be many interesting things ... yes

            It seems that someone watched the Pentagon Wars and the Best Defense, so they crossed both. In “Better Defense,” Eddie Murphy plays a tank commander who got lost somewhere in the BV. There, too, the air defense system on Abrams was attached and even a helicopter was shot down.

        Did the Yankees realize that they need to arm mobile platforms with something more powerful than MANPADS? smile Because they have no secrecy and cross-country ability comparable to MANPADS - and to compensate for their visibility and limitation in the choice of positions, they need a range of missiles and powerful warheads.
        However, they also saved here by taking the serial RVV as the base for missiles.
        By the way, EMNIP, before that they made an air defense system based on AMRAAM.

        It looks believable. It’s more like an Igla mobile-based air defense system, if you don’t take into account the guns. Therefore, the comparison with the Shell is probably not correct. As the last frontier of air defense, it will do.

                  At the moment, the Americans had to meet with enemy UAVs exclusively in urban conditions.
                  And it was precisely because of these meetings that the Americans were so suddenly preoccupied with short-range air defense systems.
                  They generally have a state close to panic, forcing them to create strange things like self-propelled guns firing nets. Based on the Humvee 8)))

    While they came up with the "killer of MIGs," we ourselves all cracked them. And when will there be new ones and whether it will be unknown.

    And what is the performance characteristics of the air defense of this BMP? I doubt that she will be able to get Mig, but he can easily hit her from high altitude with a high-precision missile ...
    I don’t think that having air defense on each BMP is good, some part can be done, but in my opinion it’s superfluous, firstly, the machine will become clearly more expensive, and secondly, this system is not always needed by BMPs, if just as an option it is the air defense machine that can and does make sense, yet its defense is much better than that of the same Shell, maybe it will really cover the front line along with the first rows of attacking units precisely during the attack ...

    I understand that the task of this machine is to escort the columns on the march, being directly in the convoy or in the guard. Then everything is logical, they don’t go on the attack. For a couple of dozens of cars, a couple of such quakes.

      They didn’t storm the columns with a shaver ... just like on naval targets, top-mast bombing has not been practiced for a long time!
      What is the range of defeat for small missiles ??? Innovation is progress ... the missile can be made very smart, of course, but the range then depends on the fuel supply ... something I have not heard about breakthrough technologies in this area.

        She and the columns do not storm with a shaver ...

        If we digress from the expression "Killer of the Moments", then the situation becomes clearer. Any turntable or even a drone can cast off over the transport column as they want. In addition to MANPADS, as a rule, there is nothing to answer. And this zyuk probably knows how to shoot on the go, the calculation is covered with ballistic armor, patency allows you to move out of the column ... No, that's all!

    There is a film "Pentagon Wars" that talks about the creation of this BMP. Highly recommend.

    Already post an excerpt from the Pentagon War?
    I wonder how this machine will fight against our electronic warfare systems.

      But how do electronic warfare systems fall into the rear of the American army? or you expect that this air defense will be in the first line of attack. No, as it should be, any air defense will be located in the 2nd, and even in the 3rd line, in its immediate rear and from there to cover its troops.
      at first glance, this Bradley lacks a normal air defense gun, because the rate of fire from a single-barrel cannon will be insufficient to hit a fast-flying target - they can be cured by installing a 6-barreled Vulcan, and the supply of missiles is small - judging by the photo only 4. I don’t know how to heal, maybe they carry with them and the crew reloads.
