Designation:

Bradley M6 Linebacker

Info
Manufacturer: BAE Systems Land and Armament  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Anti-aircraft system  

The Bradley M6 Linebacker is the U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery's solution for divisional air defense. The Linebacker successfully integrates the combat-proven Bradley Fighting Vehicle and Stinger Missile Systems.

Under the direction of Bradley Program Manager and the Ft. Bliss SHORAD (Short Range Air Defense) Program Manager, BAE Systems and Boeing produced the Bradley Linebacker to fulfill the Army's critical requirement for forward divisional air defense warfighting capabilities. Successful target tracking and live missile firings have demonstrated that the Bradley Linebacker provides superior levels of air defense performance against post-Cold War air threats. Low-cost modifications have been made to the existing Bradley turret using the Stinger fire control, Slew-to-Cue systems and the Sentinel Radar target acquisition subsystems, which give Linebacker the ability to engage targets and fire the Stinger missile while on the move and under armor protection.

The Bradley Linebacker provides superior mobility, firepower and protection to ensure completion of air defense missions, day or night.
