Bradley Stinger Fighting Vehicle - Enhanced

Definition/Scope: The Bradley Stinger Fighting Vehicle Enhanced, BSFV-E, is the M2A2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle. The initial BSFV is equipped with a 25-mm main gun, 7.62-mm coaxial machine gun, externally mounted tube launched, optically tracked, wire-guided (TOW) missile launcher, and two M257 smoke grenade launchers. The BSFV-E is an air defense system based on minimal upgrades to the BSFV. These upgrades will give the currently fielded BSFV (fitted with internal Stinger missile racks) a capability to effectively engage air threats while the crew remains under the protection of armor.
