The U.S. Army’s M2/M3 Bradley family is one of the world’s most famous infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), and it has successfully participated in such operations as Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Perhaps not quite so well known is the M6 Linebacker variant of the Bradley. The M6 is an air-defense vehicle found in heavy armored divisions, and it mounts four FIM-92A Stinger missiles in the launcher unit on the left of the turret instead of the two TOW missiles in a regular Bradley. Operated by a crew of four, the Linebacker system employs a FAAD (Forward Area Air Defense) C3I suite that allows firing while stationary or on the move. Ten spare Stinger missiles are carried inside the vehicle. The 29.9-ton M6 still retains the standard turret armament of an M242 25mm Bushmaster cannon and 7.62mm M240C coaxial machine gun, but the easiest recognition feature remains the turret-mounted missile launcher unit.
Dragon has previously issued highly detailed 1/72 scale kits of the M2 and M3 Bradley, and now the M6 Linebacker has joined the range! Based on an M2 variant, this M6 kit is of the type that has seen extensive service in Iraq in recent years. Dragon’s M6A2 shares most of the highly detailed components of previous Bradley kits, though with a completely new launcher unit for the Stinger missiles. For modelers wanting to produce an Iraq diorama with a unique twist, or simply wish to complete the Bradley family tree, this Linebacker kit is a real prize!
