We have had almost a decade to improve on what was top tech, and now with the revolution of alternative materials and composites, we should have humvees bigger than Abrams for transports now.
Down with the Stryker.

The brits have gone down the right path on this one - chobham armour on the warrior is better than the bradley ; either wholesale replacement of the bradley and styker armour or a new vehicle is needed now!
Warrior 2000 is the latest
evolution in this process of
It incorporates features to reduce
radar, thermal and acoustic
signatures; spaced aluminium
armour providing basic protection
against 30mm armour piercing
rounds, and is capable of carrying
a range of armaments up to120mm.

Any one who thinks a 20 ton APC should be able to survive RPG strikes is fooling themselves, thats why tanks weight 40-60 tons...cause you need that level of mass to stop such a threat. If you want to blame some one blame the people who are making the ERA ...it was supposed to be ready in 2004. Any one who suggests replacing Stryker with a tracked vehicle hasn't understood a thing about this entire debate! Strykers are designed for LIGHT INFANTRY NOT HEAVY INFANTRY! With Light infantry its either wheels or leg mobility. They would never get Bradelys or Warriors.
