Upgraded Bradley and AMPV at AUSA 2016:




The AMPV actually uses a new hull based on a modified Bradley hull, which is not fully compatible with the existing Bradley design.




The Bradley has new headlights, a new suspension (I assume, based on the suspension element at the left), a new ERA kit for the sides and apparently a new/modified engine? The weight-inefficient old base armor is still kept due to budget reasons probably.
