General: New 30mm Stryker Gun Changes Infantry Combat


The massively up-gunned 30mm Stryker cannon will double the range of existing .50-cal machine guns and add precision fires to the Infantry Carrier.

The US Army continues to receive prototypes of a newly-engineered up-gunned Stryker infantry vehicle armed with a more lethal, longer-range 30mm cannon as compared with the currently installed .50-cal machine guns.
The upgraded Stryker vehicle will be known as the Dragoon, the name of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment. The prototype also features a new fully-integrated commander's station, upgraded driveline, componentry and hull modifications, according to statements from the Army's Program Executive Office Ground Combat Systems.
