Bradley Fire Support Vehicle M2A3.

Although externally very similar to the M2A3 Bradley on which it is based, the TOW missile launcher has been replaced by a housing containing a laser rangefinder and sighting instruments for artillery support, and additional antennas are mounted over the taillights. This vehicle was taking part in Saber Strike 15 in Poland's Drawsko Pomorskie Training Area.

The CIV can be seen behind the commander, and the driver's thermal viewer can be seen just to his right, under the 25mm gun. This vehicle belonged to A Company, 3rd Battalion, 116th Cavalry Regiment, 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team of the Oregon National Guard.
