A video of the convoy of American Bradley armour vehicles near Dragodanovo, Bulgaria, was posted to Twitter by @NOELreports. The Bradley armoured vehicle, which is not a tank but has chains like one and has two guns placed on it chambered in 25 mm and 7.62 mm, is one of the best military equipment the United States recently decided to give Ukraine.

The U.S. has given Ukraine several cutting-edge weapons, including Patriot and HIMARS. Bradley is expected to speed up Ukrainian military operations to drive Russian forces from their territory.
The video demonstrates Bradley armoured vehicles being transported by trucks in the Bulgarian village of Dragodanovo. The Bulgarian military police were in convoy.
As several nations have given Ukraine armed assistance to fend off the Russian aggression that has been devastating since February 24, 2022, Bulgaria has also helped Ukraine by sending weapons and medical supplies to the Ukrainian army. According to estimates, Ukrainian companies manufacturing weapons in Bulgaria gave them $1 billion.
To bolster its forces against Russia and prepare for a potential spring attack, the United States and Germany provided Ukraine with armoured vehicles, including 50 anti-tank Bradleys.
A medium-armoured combat vehicle having tracks rather than wheels is the M2A2 Bradley. It is considered crucial equipment for carrying infantry squads into battle safely and has a three-person crew and five or six additional soldiers.
A machine gun, an anti-tank TOW missile launcher, and a 25 mm gun mounted on top are usually its primary weapons. If the Bradley is made useless, it can also be equipped with other weapons.
The term “TOW” refers to a type of missile that can only be fired at objects visible to advancing soldiers on the battlefield. As a result, it performs particularly well in open areas like deserts and vast plains.
Bradley Bowman, senior director of Military and Political Power at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, claims that the employment of Bradleys will enable Ukrainian forces to take advantage of weak points brought on by artillery barrages. This combo is strong.
