The US Army, infantry fighting vehicle, Bradley.
The Yuma Museum has been recently upgraded, judging by the vehicles, they all looked great.
Typical of American military vehicles from the South West. They were often painted green if they were Army Reserve, but were repainted for Desert Storm in yellow, and repainted back to green when they came home. The bumper codes were often not repainted and so you have the yellow under black bumper codes. The reverse is often true for vehicles deployed from the South West.
This think is as big as a Sherman tank. For a decade the press told us they were a terrible vehicle, as usual.
Then they proved themselves in Desert Storm and the press looked foolish, as usual.
