The Croatian army is armed with the American BMN M2A2 Bradley ODS

BMX M2A2 ODS Bradley from the US Army in Europe


The Armed Forces of Croatia will be armed with American infantry fighting vehicles M2A2 Bradley in the modification of ODS (Operation 'Desert Storm'). According to the bmpd blog, the equipment will be delivered from the presence of the US Army.

The Croatian army will receive the 84 BMP M2A2 ODS, of which 60 vehicles will go into service with the mechanized battalion, and the remaining 24 will be used as a source of spare parts. All equipment is transferred to the Americans free of charge within the framework of the European Recapitalization Incentive Program (ERIP), which is aimed at replacing Soviet-era weapons and equipment with more modern American-made models in Eastern and Southern Europe.

In addition to the free transfer of infantry fighting vehicles, the United States provides financial assistance in the amount of $ 25 million, which should be used to repair and partially modernize 60 combatant infantry fighting vehicles M2A2 ODS. Repair and modernization of the equipment will be made at the Croatian company Đuro Đaković Specijalna vozila (Slavonski Brod, a former Yugoslav plant for the production of tanks M-84).

Croatia will become the second foreign recipient of the Bradley BMP transferred from the presence of the US Army - earlier in 2017, the 32 M2A2 Bradley BMPs were transferred by the Americans to the Lebanese army.

    While in Europe there will be vassals of Anglo-Saxons, mattresses will continue to modernize Abrams, Bradley and so on for them. Because they see the hippotical war with us, only with the hands of their vassals and khalui, such as Croatia, Georgia, Lithuania and Latvia, etc.

      Croats are most likely armed to the Serbs, to whom our weapons began to be supplied

        Of course it is.
        Here it is - they drove a wedge between the once fraternal peoples and get a gesheft on this.
        Everything for business.

        On the flip side, the US began arming Croatia a lot earlier and much more! In Serbia, the people and the slaves began to press on Vučić and the government! Now in Croatia, an order of magnitude better armament than in Serbia, and in the near future will receive and F16 block V in the amount of 16 pieces. So the US strategy in the Balkans that they were wasabi were much better armed than the Serbs, and this is being done! ALL THIS WEAPON (Howitzer, helicopter, BRDM brought, etc.) RECEIVED FOR FREE, the plane must pay! By the way, F16 block V falls into class 4 ++! wink

    no, but what .. Bradley is not bad. But just a little old. A completely successful program for the disposal of aging equipment in mattresses. Given that the technology in those countries that accept these nonsense is generally junk then they will come just right. They will be proud and happy.

        In the Middle East, your tanks are not taken. You supply them for free. To Syria.

          Yah? They don’t take it right? And Iraq, and Egypt, and Libya? Or is it NOT the Middle East?
          Or, in your opinion, the "Middle East" is only Israel? To Israel it is definitely "free" to deliver -We will NOT !!!
          PS By the way - your "Merkavas" - for sure - NOBODY takes it !!!

              Well, actually it’s planned to supply 400 T-90S tanks to Egypt, and as for Iraq, the T-90 is already running there.

                    The joke is that according to the assistance agreement of 1981, American money cannot be used to purchase weapons in any country other than the United States.

    Modifications with a 30 mm cannon and armor against 30 mm shells make the M2A2 a very efficient machine that can effectively fight against the Serbian BMP 2 and BTR Lazar. The car is an old woman, but Angelina Jolie will soon have 50, and she is still on the wanted list.

    This car is a good car. At least not worse than our BMP 2 which is still clogged with military units
