Tamiya M2A2 ODS Infantry Fighting Vehicle

Desert Campaigner
Production of the M2 began in 1980, and the vehicle received plenty of updates thereafter; one notable variant was the M2A2 ODS (Operation Desert Storm), which was deployed from 1996 and took on board lessons from service in the Gulf War earlier that decade. Many of its upgrades were electronic, including an improved navigation system backed up by laser rangefinder and digital compass antenna sensor, plus the VLQ-8 missile countermeasure device. Combat Identification Panels (CIP) were added to the hull sides and rear in an effort to avoid friendly fire incidents, and the M2A2 ODS was active in the Iraq War in early 2003.
