A Stryker is an eight wheeled, armored personnel carrier, developed by the U.S. army. Designed to replace the (tracked)M2/M3 Bradley, it is much faster and has much better performance on highways and in urban environments than previous apc's. The Stryker comes in many forms and are commonly used not only as a troop movement vehicle but also an ambulance or even as a light tank. It is equipped with thick amour, a cage to repel RPG's, and can be fitted to mount an array of weapons systems ranging from the 7.62 mm minigun, to two 40mm grenade launchers, to the 105mm m1a1 tank cannon.
While on route to the target, our Stryker was hit with an RPG and we continued to drive unflustered.
