Bradley turret vehicle

In early 1990, a strap-on prototype of a battlefield laser was tested at Fort Bliss, Texas. Referred to as the Stingray laser self-protection system, it was intended to blind or disable the optical sights and periscopes of enemy vehicles. Under development by Martin Marietta since 1982, a demonstration version was tested during 1986/87. The strap-on prototype was enclosed in an armored housing hinged to the right side of the Bradley turret vehicle. It was equipped with an internal display and a joystick control. The Stingray was under development as part of the U.S. Army Armored Systems Modernization Program.

This permitted them to leave the vehicle for dismounted operations. On the M3E1, all five crew members had masks connected to the central filter unit.
