Boeing and General Dynamics corporations presented their new development - Stryker Mobile SHORAD Launcher (Stryker MSL), the portal reports aviationweek.com. The American armored personnel carrier became a multipurpose combat system.


The new modification of an armored personnel carrier was created as a multi-purpose system capable of effectively fighting ground and air targets. The basis of the Stryker is the SHORAD (SHOrt Range Air Defense) shoot-off installation developed by Boeing Corporation, which was presented in the spring of this year as a replacement for the Avenger, a short-range anti-aircraft missile system based on the HMMWV. Stryker is the first "carrier" of the SHORAD shoot-off complex, while Boeing plans to place it on the M2 Bradley tracked combat vehicles, Warspot reports

United States presented a new development - Stryker MSL

Installing SHORAD shoot-off


Stryker MSL can be armed with AGM-114 Hellfire missiles (all versions, including Longbow), as well as advanced AI-3 and AIM-9X Sidewinder missiles. In addition, the installation SHORAD shoot-off can optionally be equipped with a combat laser to shoot down light drones without spending expensive missiles on them. According to the developers, the Stryker MSL will become a universal combat vehicle as part of the American army and will be able to replace the Avenger, providing air protection for combat units, and will also effectively hit any ground targets.



Stryker is a family of armored wheeled armored vehicles developed and manufactured by General Dynamics Land Systems, an American company. The Stryker armored personnel carriers entered service with the American army in 2003. The combat vehicle seats twelve people, including three crew members. Based on the Stryker, the wheel-mounted tank M1128 Mobile Gun System, the mobile mortar M1129 Mortar Carrier and more than a dozen other types of combat, engineering and auxiliary vehicles were created. Today, the American army is armed with about 4700 machines based on the Stryker.

    samavaroparavozovetrolet? If he is able to hit armored vehicles from closed positions at long range - maybe it will. And so - an underwater airplane.

      The idea is very good. If it goes into the series, it will become one of the bestsellers

    The basis of the new Stryker is the SHORAD (SHOrt Range Air Defense) shoot-off installation developed by Boeing Corporation, presented this spring as a replacement for the Avenger, a short-range anti-aircraft missile system based on the HMMWV.

    Really, it even dawned on the Yankees that an air defense system on any chassis cannot be equipped with MANPADS missiles - because the MANPADS concept is based on sacrificing all performance characteristics of missile systems for sacrifice to small mass and small dimensions. The only advantage of MANPADS is their secrecy - which the complex loses the same, being perched on a Humvee or Tiger. In short, this automatic MANPADS is detected, classified and destroyed from a range greater than the range of its operation.
    In the USSR, this was understood back in the 60s - and instead of arming the regimental air defense system on a wheeled chassis (Strela-1), the developers made the ready-made SAM system for MANPADS a heavier and longer-range missile. Although heresy on the Tiger has now begun again.

          No-no-no ... such happiness - only in the Tundra. They like rocket tanks and anti-aircraft mounts. smile

          But do not confuse the totalitarian BTR-80 with the democratic "piranha", cut by Swiss gnomes manually from a single piece of steel. smile
          Seriously, you really need to spit on upgrading the BTR-80. For the roots of this pepelats grow from the unforgettable BTR-60. And all his problems come from there (the impossibility of further increasing the mass of the machine, the rear engine, hatches).
