I notice nobody posted any pics of the Bradley ICFV Variant. The Ice Cream Feeding Vehicle.

As most of you will recall, this variant is a high-top like the ambulance, but features large hydraulically-operated swing up side panel, a massive A/C package and added external speakers.

hmmm... Now where did I leave my meds? :)

I had forgotten about the Temsah.  Jordan is really doing a good job of creating new equipment with their old stuff.  It is almost like they have taken a page from their neighbor to the West.  Now if only a conversion would come out for the Falcon 2 turret.  I know that one has already been done and is on our forum.  By someone who has already posted in this thread and given me some good ideas.

I am looking at some of the current SPGs right now for inspiration.  Thank you for that Graeme!

How about a Bradley that is fitted with the LAV-AD 25mm Gatling Gun/Stinger SAM turret?  Should be pretty much a drop in modification unless you want to put in internal details.

They used to have the M6 Linebacker...

M6 Linebacker

An air defense variant, these vehicles are modified M2A2 ODSs with the TOW missile system replaced with a four-tube Stinger missile system. From 2005 to 2006, M6 Linebackers had their Stinger missile systems removed and were converted to standard M2 Bradley ODS infantry fighting vehicles.[36]

So much for suggesting a kit bashing exercise...

Is there a reason other than cost (my uneducated guess) for the retirement of M6 Linebacker?
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

I would suggest a lack of targets and a greater need for Bradleys in their normal roles.

Something like this?

With the exception of the radar, yes, exactly like that :)

Should be an easy kit bash between the LAV-AD and the M2 IFV/M3 CFV kits

CV90AD turret, or even a CV9035 version there of, on a Bradley hull.

I know the Bradley turret has been demonstrated on a stretched M113 variant from Turkey.  Has the turret been marketed to Europe in other manners?  One that involves new FCS and even a new main gun?

(I also know that Bradley was tested with Bushmaster III...... but how would the combat endurance for the Bradley be with 35mm ammunitions instead of 30mm?)

I like how Bradley Linebacker is derived from regular Bradley.

I don't know what missiles are being carried (Googling seems to suggest something called "Joint Air-to-Ground Missile"), but surely it seems like AGM-114 can be used there as well.  Although a lack of protection from elements kinda worries me- is the TOW launcher on the standard Bradley armoured as well?
