General

A minor modification to the M2 Bradley IFV, the M3A2 carries 5 additional TOW missiles and considerably more stowed 25mm and 7.62mm ammunition, but only 2 dismounts/scouts, equipped with one M136 (AT-4) anti-armor weapon and 5.56mm rifles.

Beginning with revision 4.156 the M3A2 may be equipped with the Diehl Active Vehicle Protection System (AVePS) to enhance protection against RPG and ATGM threats.
