    I can't think of a single piece of Russian equipment I'd rather be in.
    Think about it. Which would you rather be in?
    A Stryker Dragoon OR a BMP (1,2 or3), BTR-(Any), MT-LB, Loaf (with cage) ?

      None of the above since they're all paper skin AFVs that can be shreded by even artillery shrapnel.

        Okay, they are not THAT thin.
        If IFVs can be deteated by shrapnel, what do you think a 7.62x51mm can do?

          The stryker is all-round 30cal protected and frontally 50cal protected, with all-around 14.5 protection with add-on armor
          Its definitely not a soft vehicles and would provide much better protection than a go cart

          >The ukrainians wrongly used it as a tank in the summer offensive, but it's too thinly armored.
          Its offroad capabilities are also not really fully up to snuff. Sure, it does fine when it's dry, but if it's even slightly muddy... it's just a big, heavy wheeled vehicle. The Stryker isn't really built for the kind of war Ukraine is fighting right now. As a (very) fast urban troop carrier, it works very well. It's even got AC. It's designed to move quickly along hardball roads. It's a style of maneuvering war at odds with the trench war Ukraine is currently fighting.

          >trench warfare meme
          the stryker is effective as a mechanized unit that can quickly plug in gaps, using their mobility to react to enemy maneuvers
          it is faster to deploy than armored units since it is less maintenance heavy but can dish out and take more damage than infantry, which is a universally effective role

            Okay, but when things are static and there isn't a hardball or decently maintained road to the place you're trying to get to, the Stryker struggles... because it's a heavy, wheeled vehicle. Most of the fighting occurs between treelines in wide open fields of loose, fertile soil. This shit can be very hard to get to for a Stryker. I've spent a long time with them and know from personal experience that mud + Stryker = hours spent recovering it from the puddle you had the mistake of driving through.

              >Okay, but when things are static and there isn't a hardball or decently maintained road to the place you're trying to get to
              the idea is to travel quickly along roads to get near the fight then travel slowly when near the enemy
              which is pretty much identical to how every other vehicle operates, the stryker can just react quicker than tracked vehicles because its wheeled but can get closer than trucks because its an 8x8 with armor

              >, the Stryker struggles... because it's a heavy, wheeled vehicle
              its still an 8x8 with excellent off-road performance and will outperform 4 wheeled vehicles
              and the armor means it can actually get close to begin with, translating to better mobility than lighter vehicles

              the ability to have infantry with more mobility and protection without being incredibly maintenance heavy is a universal positive and army will always be better to have it

      Does an LS swapped BRDM-2 count?

    I mean its slightly better armored than a BMP, it's got a better gun and unmanned turret. It will be much nicer to drive and operate.

    Ultimately it should perform similarly to the Ukies BTR-4 "Bucephalus" native AFV, it's a very similar layout.

    Ukraine has a simular armored vehicles, the french AMX 10 RC.
    The ukrainians wrongly used it as a tank in the summer offensive, but it's too thinly armored.
    The stryker, like the AMX 10 would fit a niche role, but a bradley or a CV-90 would be a better IFV.

        It makes me sad it died because now there is a hole between the numbers between 1127 and 1129

    Where are these things, if we're on the topic of wheeled AFV's of burger flavour?

      Only the Marines adopted It. The big army wanted to be contrarian and chose to adopt a .50 cal only until they realized that It wasn't enough and haphazardly bolted a 30mm gun turret on top that doesn't even match the hull since It was designed decades later.

      Has the upside of making everyone inside so angry that if you ever shoot at it they will get out just so they can death blossom everything within a 300m circle.
