A brief history

Stryker

Manufactured by General Dynamics Land Systems, the M1128 Stryker is an 8 wheeled armoured car, mounted with a 105mm M68A2 rifled cannon. Its primary role is that of infantry support. It has a rate of fire of 6 rounds per minute and can carry 18 rounds in it’s auto load system.

An interesting fact with the early versions of this vehicle was it’s lack of air conditioning. Crews were issued with individual cooling vests that would circulate cooled water around the garment. Issues with the heat in the vehicle would often see the vehicle computer systems overheat. The Stryker would later go on to see A/C units being fitted to the platform.

Currently in service with the United States, interestingly, it’s design is based around the Canadian LAV III light armoured vehicle.
