General Dynamics Land Systems will unveil a new generation of its Stryker of armored fighting vehicles at the upcoming AUSA (Association of the United States Army) 2023 show in Washington D.C. The Stryker is a family of eight-wheeled armored fighting vehicles derived from the Canadian LAV III. The StrykerQB technology demonstrator is designed to be the quarterback of the Army 2030. Its capabilities include silent movement, silent watch and exportable electric power via a hybrid diesel-electric power pack to enhance vehicle survivability and mobility. It is protected by an integrated Active Protection System and advanced electronic architecture with cyber defense.
Stryker vehicles are produced by General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada (GDLS-C) for the United States Army in a plant in London, Ontario. The Stryker was conceived as a family of vehicles forming the backbone of a new medium-weight brigade combat team (BCT) that was to strike a balance between heavy armor and infantry. The service launched the Interim Armored Vehicle competition, and in 2000, the service selected the LAV III proposed by GDLS and General Motors Defense. The service named this family of vehicles the “Stryker”. Ten variants of the Stryker were initially conceived, some of which have been upgraded with v-hulls.
