Osprey New Vanguard 121 : Stryker Combat Vehicles

The eight-wheeled (8x8) Stryker combat light armoured vehicle was adopted by the US Army in 2002 to provide a comparatively rapidly deployable contingency force with armour protection, tactical mobility, and heavy firepower, as well as advanced command, control communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities. Covering the first new US Army release since the M1 Abrams MBT, this book details the conception, ongoing development and deployment of one of the most highly anticipated new AFVs in recent years, including its service in Iraq and the ensuing controversy surrounding the Stryker's varying successes. Text by Gordon L Rottman with illustrations by Hugh Johnson.
