Technically, if you're using the Bradley as a troop carrier, then it functions as a type of APC. Obviously that's not its primary function, but it sorta works for that.
But the comparison was between the HumV and the APC. I think it entirely depends on what you're doing. If you need flexibility, go HumV. If you are trying to transport troops through extremely hostile territory and under enemy fire of all sorts ... well you'd be kinda stupid to go with the HumV over the APC. If you need to get somewhere faster, back to the HumV again. If you need to run through an area with lots of brush or other terrain challenges and there's no road, the APC is a better choice.

Humvee isn't a combat troop carrier, it doesn't have any armor. I'd much rather be in a Bradley, or even a Stryker, hell even an M113
Ahh...the AK-47, when you absolutely, positively have to kill every last motherf*cker in the room...accept no substitute
