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 XM-1296* 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.

* As of March 2018, although the ICV-D has been already delivered to the US Military and sent to Europe, it is still undergoing tests and trials.  Therefore, it is not an official "program of record" and thusly bears an "XM" prefixed designation.
