Army’s New Up-Gunned Stryker Shoots Farther, Hits Harder

Posted November 1, 2016 at 6:07am reports that “the U.S. Army recently took delivery of the first Stryker combat vehicle armed with a 30mm cannon — an upgrade that significantly boosts the firepower and range of the eight-wheeled infantry carrier.”

“The upgraded M1126 Stryker vehicle will be known as the Dragoon, the name of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, according to an Oct. 28 Army press release.”

“‘It’s important to realize the genesis of this event,’ said Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Daniel B. Allyn, speaking at the General Dynamics Land Systems Maneuver Collaboration Center in Sterling Heights, Michigan.”
