Ground Vehicles: BDAR Kit NSN

BLUF: Get a Battle Damage and Assessment Repair (BDAR) crew kit for your combat or tactical vehicle with NSN 2590-01-659-5620.
  Dear Half-Mast,
Is there a new Battle Damage Assessment and Repair (crew kit) for the Bradley FOV? The one I have shows up in FEDLOG as obsolete.
Dear Sir,
If you still have an old BDAR kit (NSN 5180-01-502-9504, NSN 5180-01-502-9507 or NSN 5180-01-575-1265), order the new one with NSN 2590-01-659-5620.

It’s been developed for use by all ground combat and tactical vehicles and combines all the capabilities of the previous kits while improving fluid line and electrical repairs.
