Most of the guys I spoke to like the Stryker because it's faster and much more quiet than a Bardley.

Btw, have you all heard of the Colonel?

looks like it was already used in Louisiana.

i cheked it out. wat is the vehicle for? to replace the Stryker? a prototype for the future combat systems?

looks pretty cool. they made a wide variety of the vehicle, 6x6, 4x4, 8x8,10x10.

looks like somthing Batman would like to get his hands on if he needs more protection against RPGs, if the Pentagon doesnt want it.

these are the 10x10 vehicles. i wonder wat dis vehicle is meant for. to replace the Strykers or the other older light armor vehicle like the Marine Corp's LAV? in anicase we probably find out soon. the vehicle pic posted by Midav was probably to test to see how it can handle the environment especially after the Katrina disaster.

Oh c’mon, NDIA saying Strykers are great is like Phillip Morris saying smoking is good for you ‘cause of their “special” flavor.

Honestly, from the picture does that look like a combat vehicle or a horse trailer?

“After being in uniform supporting the Stryker and blocking the M8 Buford AGS light tank in 2001, General Keane retired and joined the Board of Directors of GDLS the makers of the Stryker wheeled deathtrap.”

NDIA stands for National Defense Industrial Association. GDLS is their member. They sell the stuff, arms trade, how are they going to say that Stryker kills troops?

This IS from their article;
“If you were off-road in Louisiana, there was a tendency to get stuck. You really couldn’t get the Stryker through some areas where a Ford F-250 would get through.” On the other hand, “once you were on a highway, you’re going 70 miles an hour very easily,” he said.”

People have been screaming their heads of for years about this one, desperately trying to revive badly needed M113 Gavin and M8 Buford AGS instead of having Stryker “comfortably” rolling around freeways.

With SLAT and full load the Stryker pushes over 20 tons, completely loses mobility, overpressure busts suspension and chews up tires and they need to swap them out a couple of times a day. Drive train goes out do to the overload.

“The Russian BMP-3 can swim in the OCEANS, be airdropped and carry infantry with 100mm main gun, 30mm autocannon and Medium Machine Gun turret firepower, all in a light package that out performs both Bradley and Warrior in cross-country mobility”

Add a TC cupola, and we can just order the suckers up and go fight. I'm assuming that the 30mm is still there. Where did you find that sucker and who is using it."
Here are some links, knock your selves out.
