M6 Linebacker

The M6 Linebacker in reality.

The M6 Linebacker is an air defense variant of the M3A3 Bradley. These vehicles are modified M3A3s with the TOW missile system replaced with a four-tube Stinger missile system. The M6 has been retired from U.S. service. The vehicle is operated by the United States Marine Corps and the United States Navy SEALs in Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2: Special Forces.

The M6 Linebacker in Battlefield 2 is the main air-defense vehicle of the United States Marine Corps and the EU. Its counterparts are the Chinese Type 95 SPAAA and the MEC 2K22 Tunguska. This mobile AA sets itself apart from its Russian and Chinese counterparts because instead of a rapid firing set of guns, it has a single 25mm rifle that fires rounds one by one. This gives the Linebacker an advantage over infantry, as the single rounds are easier to aim on a single point, and against armored vehicles, as the larger round can do much more damage than the smaller ones of its competitors. However, it is difficult to engage enemy aircraft at a range, because without a high rate of fire, the rounds are harder to track.

Vehicle PositionsEdit

Driver - Completely protected, controls main gun and stinger missiles

Passenger - Rides on open hatch, completely exposed, only has own weapons

The passenger is completely exposed to enemy fire, but an engineer is capable of repairing the vehicle while standing.


AA vehicles are protected with armor that is close to an IFV, so two explosive weapons will destroy it. With no smoke and no effective way to destroy armor, it is best to avoid land engagements unless as a last resort.
