Yep she’s designed to fight righ along with the infantry. From the perfect cannon for suppressing infantry, to the tank busting capability of the TOW, right down to the large amount of gear it can carry into a fight. That’s food, water, ammo, and supplies storage for sustained operations.
>slaps m3 recon variant
>you can fit so many TOWs in this baby
>Seats are a fucking padded bench
>Say goodby to to your knees and back
>Mines? Have fun
What are the seats on the CV-90 and why would the Cv-90 not get blown up by a mine
CV90 has classified anti-mine technology. Why do you think none were lost in iraq
Because none were ever sent to iraq
>W-WHAT ANLBOUT CV90!
Kek why did you get btfod so hard in the CV90 thread you made this one Warriortard? Why are you such a sperg lmao
>Seats are a fucking padded bench
What do you expect from a fucking APC? Gamer chair for every goober sitting the back?
>What do you expect from a fucking APC?
From a half-modern IFV you mean?
>Seats decoupled from the floor
>Something that dont transmit every vibration and bounce
The Bradley suffered really badly compared to other IFVs when in an urban environment so much so it was withdrawn almost immediately from Iraq and never saw action in Afganistan. It was a catastrophe.
The Bradley did the best. It was destroyed most because it saw the most amount of combat
It saw very little combat in Iraq 2003 and by combat I mean it got fucking rekt left right and centre by anything and everyone. I've read reports of stones causing Bradley's to explode.
Can you prove that it only saw little combat? It was heavily deployed and there’s countless videos from iraq with Bradley’s fighting in the streets. I know there’s also pictures of it hitting mines but is that all you know about the deployments? Seems pretty disingenuous
I've seen the video where it's providing fire support fro infantry then the Bradley infront catches fire from a minor engagement. Also the ones that got rekt by RPG7s that the other IFVs shrug off. The ones that caught fire because of a rock etc. The ones that were destroyed by a simple molotov.
Amazing how bad it performed.
Here it killing snipers in iraq. Supporting troops like it was designed to do
Here it is lighting up insurgents with 7.62
Here it is destroying enemies hidden in a building using its TOW.
There’s plenty more just like those
Fuck I love the concept of IFVs.
Based. Are there videos of marder or cv-90 supporting troops in combat?
Not that I can find. They haven’t been to the hotspots the Bradley has though
here you go, not much but it's there.
Light combat against light infantry in the open desert
Indeed. here's another one, pretty interesting, they have subtitles(Swedish)that you can auto-translate to English. https://youtu.be/fT35bNPYsaU
>5:50 RPG close call
Those infantry aren't wearing armor, and they're fighting a sniper, but they're just standing around in the open.
Good thing the Bradley took care of it then
Second To None.
Incredible how it’s pretty much the only western IFV with heavy urban combat experience and we get to watch it on video. I’d welcome videos of the cv-90 or warrior but they just don’t exist.
There's videos of Russian IFVs in urban combat, its not pretty.
>It saw very little combat in Iraq 2003
It saw years of combat before the MRAPs were brought in to replace. Why are you saying very little?
Hi warriortard why do you post like this everyone knows it's you.
>someone demanded i back up my statements, this must be a personal attack on my person.
Has the CV-90 seen combat in urban environment? It hasn’t it was only in afghanistan. How could you compare the two
>Slaps M3/M2 variant
looks way better than the Marder
but worse than the Puma i guess.
Anon this isn’t spacious at all
But it is
>no comms gear
wow real spacious vehicle you have here
>the rifle is as tall as the compartment. kek you can’t make this stuff up.
seems reasonable to me. How much taller do you want it to be? that just makes it an easier target.
Imagine the vehicle is on fire and you're trying to get out but your gear is all tangled up in all that fucking webbing.
Imagine hitting a mine and breaking your back and legs because the bench you sit on is bolted directly to the floor
But it's not bolted to the floor, it's made of webbing.
Yea marder was pretty shit. It had an unstabilized gun which was another huge disadvantage by the 1980s
Where do the people go?
Back to back seats eat up so much space it’s unreal. Are they covering up a fuel compartment or is it just bad design
But your infantry can't fire their rifles from the side ports if the seating arrangement makes sense!
It still looks cramped, but there are so many worse ifv/apcs it blows my mind.
BMP-2 comes to mind. CV-90 on the western side of things
Holy shit a mine would absolutely destroy these things
a mine absolutely destroys any vehicle it hits. the occupants are usually casualties unless the vehicle is designed from the ground up, no pun intended, to survive blasts from beneath the hull. go die in a meatwave, ivan.
Nope, you should become educated on the counter measures such as harness seating etc. The Bradley is notoriously dangerous.
>looks like baghdad
>blown the fuck up bradley
i'm like 99% sure that's my old unit during my 2006-2007 baghdad tour :...my company (C) and A company (1-26 INF) both had one bradley each destroyed like that by a deep buried IED and all our guys in each were killed. I don't know if 2ID guys responded and helped out when either of those events happened. I wasn't personally at either event but I had good friends in my company's brad that got blown up.
or it could be this one...I can't tell if the first picture I quoted had the armor upgrades and reactive armor. this second picture looks like how ours looked, and I know my company's brad that got blown up, the turret popped off. that could even be a picture from Camp Taji, pretty sure they took what was left back there.
The Bradley user fears the chad mid 19th century field artillery user.
