Can an RPG destroy a Bradley?

An RPG-7 can take out a T-80, which is a main battle tank. That has been done in actual combat. So yes, you could take out a Bradley with one (or most modern IFVs for that matter). For an M2A3 with its reactive armor, it would take a tandem warhead rocket like the PG7-VR to penetrate a Bradley.
