The M2 Bradley IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) and M3 Bradley CFV (Cavalry Fighting Vehicle) are American infantry fighting vehicles manufactured by BAE Systems Land and Armaments, formerly United Defense.

As with other infantry fighting vehicles, the Bradley is designed to transport infantry with armor protection while providing covering fire to suppress enemy troops and armored vehicles. The M2 holds a crew of three: a commander, a gunner and a driver; as well as six fully equipped soldiers. The M3 mainly conducts scout missions and carries two scouts in addition to the regular crew of three.

The Republic of Coruscant acquired many M2s after the Battle of the Bulge when they took control of the lower 48 states from the Enclave, the vehicles lying abandoned in numerous army bases. The Coruscanti Army quickly adopted them as infantry fighting vehicles, relieving the M7 Railman of the role. The Bradley is not as popular as the Warrior IFV, as months of neglect have led to mechanical issues with operation of the turret[1].
