- for reconnaissance and to transport a squad of infantry, providing them protection from small arms fire, while also providing firepower to both suppress and eliminate most threats to friendly infantry; and
- to be highly maneuverable and to be fast enough to keep up with heavy armor during an advance.
The M2 Bradley holds a crew of three: a commander, a gunner and a driver, as well as six fully equipped soldiers.
