Spine Boards

This is a detail you don’t often see on models, but they’re carried by lots of modern armor. Do they carry these on Bradleys? Specifically M3a3s? If so, where do they keep it, how do they secure it, any information you could give is great! Thanks

I have not seen them carried on Bradleys nor Abrams. They are usually carried on lighter vehicles (HMMWV, MRAP, etc.) that would come to a hit Bradley and evac the wounded.

This is Korea, but have seen them in Texas and Colorado as well.

Welcome to the forum by the way.

That partially answers one of my questions. Any shots of a spine board on an ERA-equipped Bradley?

I’ve only seen that once, in Iraq on our COP. No photo, but it was here, about where this tow bar is:

Lot of items get stored inboard of those armor plates.

The miliatry uses a roll up strecher called a sked. Produced by skedco. Its manpacked in a backpack by the medic or assigned personnel.

Recently I bought this set, still waiting to come.
Looks nice on pictures

Our SF medics carried these. With four knuckle draggers and a terp in each gun truck space was at a premium. We didn’t have room for a spine board.

Ditto on the welcome

Interesting. Looks just like the 3D prints I have. Can you tell me who the seller is?
