Is the Bradley amphibious?
Also, is the Bradley Fighting Vehicle amphibious?
The Bradley M2A3 uses the same powerpack and transmission that the M2A2. The vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 61 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 400 km. The Bradley M2A3 is fully amphibious and propelled in the water by its tracks at a maximum speed of 6.4 km/h.
Also, is a Bradley a tank? A tank is a heavily armed and heavily armoured tracked vehicle that has the single purpose of offensive action. Generally speaking a tank has a main gun larger than 75mm. The whole tank is designed around bringing this weapon to bear. The Bradley is a Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV).
Beside this, is the m3 Bradley amphibious?
The Bradley is equipped with a VTA-903T engine from Cummins Engine Co of Colombus, Indiana. The hydromechanical transmission HMPT-500 from Combat Propulsion Systems, a Division of L-3 Communications, provides three speed ranges. The engines provide a maximum speed of 66km/h. All Bradleys are amphibious.
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.
