US experienced a new modification of "Stryker"

24
Two months ago, Boeing and General Dynamics corporations presented the first prototype of the Stryker MSL combat vehicle. October 7 press office of General Dynamics Land Systems reported the successful completion of its testing and showed a video from the test.
Testing the combat capabilities of the Stryker MSL (Mobile SHORAD Launcher) took place on September 16 at the White Sands (New Mexico) military range, but it is only now that they became aware of them. During the tests, the machine hit several ground and air targets with guided missiles.




When the US Army pointed out the need to address the issue of short-range air defense, we developed the Stryker Mobile SHORAD Launcher in just seven months. MSL is just the latest example of the versatility of the Stryker platform, armed with a Boeing rocket launcher. This is the next generation firepower.
- Said the press service of General Dynamics Land Systems.

The new modification of an armored personnel carrier was created as a multi-purpose system capable of effectively fighting ground and air targets. The armament of the vehicle 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 anti-aircraft missile system deployed on the HMMWV base. Stryker is the first “carrier” of the SHORAD shoot-off complex, while Boeing plans to deploy it on M2 Bradley tracked combat vehicles.

US experienced a new modification of "Stryker"

Rocket launcher 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 fighting vehicle as part of the American army and will be able to replace the Avenger, providing air protection for the units, as well as effectively hitting any ground targets, reports "Warspot"

    Oh how !!!!!! the concept of air supremacy has changed? Have brought poor mattresses!

      On the laser that they were going to set, it must be supposed that the bolt was hammered, but how much was the screech.

      Let's think logically. What if the concept didn’t change, but it didn’t change ... So the means are needed where there can be no superiority. And where there can be no air superiority? Where pin dos are not officially fought, while they are ironed from the sky and Stingers are not effective. https://topwar.ru/125740-minoborony-obnaruzhilo-a

        On the modern battlefield in local conflicts.
        Or rather, in modern conditions, even total air supremacy cannot ensure the absence of a threat of attack. UAVs are cheap, moreover, they are improving. And all sorts of baboons like ISIS are quite accessible.

          If you think further it turns out .....
          they are preparing equipment for sale and not for their own army, and as a conclusion, support for local conflicts !!!
          China does not agree !!

          I agree, a colleague, but Americans hope for superior technology

          Not a big issue on energy supply but it is .... insignificant lol

    Oka and Chrysanthemum on the same chassis, and in 2 in 1 format. Not bad, but will it be released?

    Our "Carapace" does not give them rest, but the Yankees went further, decided to make and work on a water bottle not only in the near air defense zone, but also on ground targets - in principle, not bad.

      Bad in principle. 8))) As well as the use of MLRS as launchers for anti-aircraft missiles. Another one of their "project"

      Why not even sniff at underwater targets? Having such a radius of action, ground targets are on the offensive. Then why have a bunch of anti-air junk if you have enemy trenches in front of you? It is in such conditions ballast. The trouble is, since the pie starts to stitch the boots ..... I can imagine a couple of units of ammunition for different purposes. A few dozen of these pairs. He shot two times and in the bushes to reload. The rest will only be great to interfere .....

    Terribly strange device. I won’t know what his place is in battle order. In theory, it should have been cars:
    One is purely anti-aircraft, with the ability to use as C-RAM, the fight against UAVs and high-precision ammunition like barrage ammunition and cruise missiles. That is, anti-aircraft missiles plus anti-aircraft artillery mount.
    The second is SPTRK, which launches expensive Helfaers or cheap managed Hydras.

    And here is supposedly a "wagon", which in fact is a bright representative of the category "neither fish, nor meat" ...

      I think this is a concept, the main thing is to give what they ask, and there already in the process they will decide how best.

        Well, this is a huge step back.
        For example, there is already a tested model of SPTRK, however, based on the Patria

        Shoots either Helfaers or DAGRs converted from uncontrolled aircraft Hydras
        Pay attention to the guidance system on the lift, which compensates for the "shedness" SPTRK based on wheeled armored personnel carriers.

        What is the meaning of the “concept”, which is obviously worse than existing and tested solutions? They essentially offered pliers with a built-in bottle opener. 8)))

          They need short-range air defense to replace their Avengir. To the air defense unit, they stuck the option of firing at ground targets. And what they will beat on the ground will agree, if the military likes this decision, just a concept.

            Also there is a ready-made solution in the form of MML (Multi-Mission Launcher)
            The most beautiful universal solution. Which can be installed on any chassis, right up to the trailer.
            Scalable to everything else.

              And why is it beautiful? I see Helfires Longbow, Saunvindyra and incomprehensible small rackets without explosives and anti-missile Iron Dome. The range of the sounder when starting from the ground, even using an accelerator, will not exceed 10 km. With helfires, the same garbage 10-15 km (taking into account ballistics) in range. PRO - you also need a radar. So the complex of PU, radar and KP (the last 2 can be combined in one machine) ....
              No ... NLOS leave artillery and air defense separately pzhst.

                Universalism and scalability.
                There is a single TPK, which houses either one large missile like AIM-9X or four "little things" designed to protect against VTB, C-RAM (including guided artillery shells) and mini-UAVs.
                This is universalism.
                These TACs can be installed on the launcher in a number that allows the base chassis. For example, on the FMTV truck, the launcher with the 15th TPK, and on the Humvi with the 6th
                This is scalability.
                No ... NLOS leave artillery and air defense separately pzhst.

                You have mixed up something. This is a purely excellent launcher. It can fire at ground targets, but only with anti-aircraft missiles. As we have done.

                  If only air defense then there are generally no questions, exc. range. The main questions are not to the PU, but to the middle of intelligence and control. Given the common rail systems with air defense systems in the west (except for the Jews with their Iron Dome, Arrow and Barracks), a normal solution for rapid development

                    Here the question is very controversial. It is not known what is better, to separate them, like the Americans, or to try to install them on one machine, as we try for short-range air defense systems.
                    Perhaps when a system appears that allows simulating a clash close to reality, this question will get its answer.
