M3A3 in real life.

The M3A3 Bradley is an American Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) manufactured by BAE Systems Land and Armaments.

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

In Battlefield: Bad Company, the M3A3 Bradley is the counterpart of the Russian BMD-3 and the MEC 2T Stalker. The only differences are the sights for the main gun, positions of passengers and its cosmetic differences. It is most effective against infantry, light vehicles and other infantry fighting vehicles. It is least effective against main battle tanks, but in the hands of a skilled player, it can be used for such a task.

The M3A3 Bradley in Battlefield: Bad Company 2

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the M3A3 Bradley can be upgraded through the use of Specializations to reload its autocannon faster and do more damage per round. It can also be upgraded to have the capability to zoom in, heavier armor, and a TOW Missile Launcher as an alternate, anti-armor weapon, while the BMD-3 Bakhcha has a 9M133 Kornet attached and all vehicle specializations also apply to it in the same way. The Alternate Weapon Package is particularly advisable because the TOW missile launcher expands the abilities of the vehicle to bring down enemy tanks in addition to infantry. The TOW missile is also useful for hitting targets around corners because it is guided in the same way as a stationary TOW missile.

Vehicle positionsEdit

Driver: The drivers position is the main position in the tank. The driver controls where the tank goes, as well as controlling the 25mm chain gun. The driver also deals with enemy vehicles with the TOW if the V ALT Spec is used.

Secondary gunner: The secondary gunner's role is to defend the tank from enemy Engineers and UAV's, as well as thinning out enemy infantry. They control a .50 cal machine gun with a 360 turn radius.

Left and Right Passengers: These passengers each have a firing port for a mounted Machine Gun, positioned on the left and right sides of the tank, respectively. This MG does not have to reload, but does overheat with prolonged fire. The player can zoom in, but the view is restricted to a small slit.




Squad DeathmatchEdit




  • In Battlefield: Bad Company, the Bradley, being an IFV, is much weaker than the Abrams and can only take 2 hits to the front, 2 hits to the side and 1 hit to the rear from a Main Battle Tank. This does not apply for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, as the Bradley and MBTs have identical health stats.
  • The Bradley, like all other land vehicles, will eject the passengers and crew and will explode when sinking into a large body of water in Battlefield: Bad Company (i.e. A lake where players on foot swim). In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, however, the Bradley can function in 4 foot deep water.
  • In both the Bradley and BMD-3 when using the coaxial weapon specialization, it will say you have a M240 or PKT machine gun Coaxial and not a TOW launcher or Kornet.
