Pentagon confirms: First Bradley IFVs already in Ukraine

A portion of U.S. M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles have already arrived in Ukraine.

“Yes, we can confirm that a portion of Bradleys have arrived [in Ukraine],” Army Maj. Charlie Dietz, a Pentagon spokesman, told The War Zone Tuesday morning, The Drive informs.

Dietz would not say when they arrived or how many have arrived, deferring those questions to the Defense Ministry of Ukraine.

On Monday, the Defense Ministry of Ukraine tweeted out photos of the Bradleys painted in that nation’s digital camouflage.

The Pentagon reported earlier that Ukraine would receive a modernized version of the Bradley infantry fighting vehicles which are called "tank killers".

Bradley vehicles are part of the concept of "network warfare" which has already proven its effectiveness in battles with the Russian army.

The new package of U.S. security assistance included 50 U.S. M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. The latest aid package also provides for the transfer of ammunition for M2 Bradley, consisting of 500 TOW anti-tank missiles and 250,000 rounds of 25mm ammunition specifically for these vehicles.
