Which Bradley kit for a Ukraine Bradley

That is the front cover for the swim barrier. If you look at Tamiya and Academy’s M2 and M2A2 hulls, there is a small roll that goes completely around the outer lip of the top hull. This contained the swim barrier that was erected before attempting to cross a body of water. It was black rubber and usually not painted or the paint had chipped/rubbed off the rubber.

It was removed with the M2A2 ODS upgrades, probably why you don’t see it often.
