Operation Desert Storm: Early Performance Assessment of Bradley and Abrams
In response to your request, we have developed information on the performance of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle and the Abrams tank during the Persian Gulf war. Specifically, you asked that we obtain information from Bradley and Abrams crews on (1) how well their systems performed during the war and whether improvements were needed, (2) what types of problems the two systems experienced, and (3) how well combat support vehicles were able to recover or keep pace with the Bradley and the Abrams. On October 23, 1991, we briefed your staff on the results of our work. This letter summarizes the information discussed at that meeting, and appendixes I through IV present more detailed information.
