Nod light tanks in the desert.
The M2 Bradley was originally an American Infantry Fighting Vehicle, developed to meet the growing need and proven effectiveness of IFVs. It was originally mounted with a 25mm chaingun and TOW missiles to engage tanks with. It was originally a complicated machine and had its disadvantages, but for all intents and purposes the vehicle ended up becoming successful with some of the mightiest armies on Earth, many of whom are sponsors of GDI. The newest member of the Bradley vehicle family is, however, a light tank used exclusively by the Brotherhood of Nod: it sacrificed the troop-carrying capacity for a 75mm tank gun that is marginally-effective against heavy armors while retaining speed and maneuverability.
If compared to the GDI Medium tank, the M2 Bradley has less firepower and armor but more speed. Direct confrontation against GDI tanks is often foolish unless Nod tanks have higher numbers and are supported by other vehicles, such as Artillery and Stealth tanks.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The light tank is a Nod game unit in Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn but also appears as a GDI vehicle in the animations.
