Miscellaneous Info: After the Russian annexation of the Crimea, the US Military realized that the Stryker IAV Series lacked a variant that matched the firepower and lethality of many of the contemporary Infantry Fighting Vehicles. Therefore, in 2015 it was decided that a suitable weapons system should be found to "up-gun" the Stryker series; The solution being the un-manned Kongsberg Protector Medium Caliber Turret (MCT-30). The MCT-30 is fitted with the Orbital ATK 30mm XM-813 cannon, which is derived from the well-proven Mark 44 Bushmaster.  The turret is mounted on a flat bottom hull (FBH) Stryker and is designated the M1296 Infantry Carrier Vehicle-Dragoon (ICV-D).  Although the ICV-D is mounted on a FBH platform, it does encompass some enhancements seen on the newer Double-V Hull (DVH) variants, including an up-rated suspension and wider tires.
