|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.
