The first batch of over 60 Bradley IFVs from U.S. en route to Ukraine

U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) is delivering the first shipment of Bradley main infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine, USTRANSCOM announced in a press release on Monday.

The shipment, which contains more than 60 Bradleys, left American shores last week. It is part of the United States’ $2.85 billion military aid agreement announced earlier this year.

“The Bradley is a very powerful vehicle that we are providing to the Ukrainians,” said Army Lt. Col. Rebecca D’Angelo, 841st Transportation Battalion commander, who was helping oversee the loading of the equipment. “This is going to hopefully enhance their capabilities to provide forward advancement in the battlefield and regain lost grounds by having equipment that matches or exceeds what the Russians have.”
