As a result, M2 units must depend on indirect fire support and their own direct fire 25-mm and MMGs to suppress an infantry force, and at that, this force must be foolhardy enough to ambush from unprepared fighting positions along the forward slopes of nearby terrain rises.
The infantry inside the Bradley are there then to "protect tanks" and "consolidate gains," which means the objectives the infantry is going to dismount for will have already been taken by the action of the vehicles, i.e., M1A1 main battle tanks and M2 Bradley IFVs.
While it is true that M2 Bradley-only equipped units would be better termed "armored infantry," the 30th Infantry Brigade (Enhanced Readiness) (and other brigades facing the same problems) should have both armored infantry and mechanized infantry battalions the ability to fight in the open or in closed terrain.

(Ouch!) The Bradley was not even considered in Switzerland and in Finland as far as I know, but there have been a few interesting things done on the Bradley chassis lately (without it's turret) apart from the MLRS, so I guess it's got a future after all.
As currently configured, the Bradley is the clear winner because of TOW and stabilized cannon.
I dare say that Bradley crews wouldn't mind a stabilised 40mm gun rather than their 25mm cannon, but they seem to do damn well with what they have already got.

A simple gearshift (the Bradley has an automatic transmission) is on the right, there is an “H” shaped steering yoke, and the usual gas and brake pedals.
The gun in the Bradley is fully stabilized, meaning that while the vehicle is moving the gun will remain steady on whatever the gunner is sighting on, thanks to gyros.
In fact, the only noticeable differences between the M2 and the M3 are that the external firing ports for the squad M16s which are absent on the M3.
