The Russian military managed to capture the American M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicle as a trophy

The Russian military managed to deliver to the rear an American M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, which was shot down in the Avdeevsky direction back in November. This event became the first confirmed case when the Russian side was able to completely evacuate an American infantry fighting vehicle to the rear, as reported by Russian information resources.

The M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was knocked out in battles on the northern flank of Avdievka, but previously it could not be evacuated for various reasons. It is reported that until this point, the Russian military was only able to remove individual components and elements of interest, such as weapons and optics, from damaged American infantry fighting vehicles.

According to a number of sources, this particular combat vehicle was most likely part of the 47th separate mechanized brigade "Magura" of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which first participated in the summer counter-offensive in the Zaporozhye direction, and then was transferred to the Avdiivka direction. According to various sources, the losses of the APU of the M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicle can range from 30 to 50 units.

The first American M2A2 ODS Bradley infantry fighting vehicles were delivered to Ukraine in April of this year. They were intended to participate in the summer counter-offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. However, already in the first days of the offensive, the Ukrainian army suffered significant losses, including armored vehicles supplied by the West.
