Units are in the process of turning in their Bradley A2/A3 vehicles to depot so they can be upgraded to the new A4 variant.
Units turning in vehicles should be aware that the towing and tie-down shackles installed on current vehicles aren’t required on the new A4 variant. Upgrading to the new variant includes installing newly designed tie downs that are replacing the shackles.
There’s no need to remove the shackle anchors, NSN 4030-01-187-0964, from vehicles being turned in for upgrade. They’ll be removed at depot before the new tie downs are installed.
Once vehicles are turned in, units can remove the towing shackles from their property books.
