BTR Stryker 2nd Cavalry Regiment of the American Army caught fire in Poland

The American armored personnel carrier Stryker from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment of the US Army caught fire on the road in Poland. The incident occurred on January 18, according to Polish media.


Details of the incident are not given, it is known that in the armored personnel carrier were two US troops who were not affected by the fire. The reason for the fire of the APCs is not reported, according to the US military, before that they heard some noise. It was not possible to put out the burning armored personnel carrier on their own, fire brigades from the nearest settlement left for the scene. There is no evidence of damage

The 2nd Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army (2nd Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Dragoons) is deployed in Germany in Filseck, Bavaria. The first wheeled armored vehicle Stryker XM1296 Stryker ICV Dragoon (ICVD), equipped with a combat module with a 30-mm automatic cannon, the regiment received in November 2017, the main deliveries of armored personnel carriers began in May 2018. The requirement from the 2nd Cavalry Regiment to equip Stryker vehicles with 30-mm guns is directly motivated by the need to confront the numerous main Russian armored vehicles equipped with 30-mm guns (BMP-2, BMP-3, BTR-82).


Despite the fact that the regiment is stationed in Germany, the Stryker armored personnel carriers of this regiment were repeatedly seen on the territory of Poland in the region of Russian borders.

        What did they hear for the noise? Shorty? Or a shot from PTRS?
        It can be seen too, on Chinese semiconductors and wires they collect ...

          As an option, we have tested a new product. Photo models of the product from the link below.
          According to the publication Aviation Week, during a recent visit by Vladimir Putin to Sevastopol, a model of a promising missile, designated as the Interspecific small-sized modular aviation weapon, or MMM ASP was demonstrated.
          According to the description, a missile is created to destroy fuel depots, manpower, various surface targets, strong points, as well as aircraft and helicopters in parking lots.

          equipping Stryker vehicles with 30-mm guns is directly motivated by the need to withstand the numerous main Russian armored vehicles equipped with 30-mm guns (BMP-2, BMP-3, BTR-82)

          But is it planned in the military scenarios of NATO against armored personnel carriers to put armored personnel carriers?
          Indeed, the purpose of the armored personnel carrier is to transport infantry and support it in the battle against infantry.
          BTR is still not a tank, and against armored personnel carriers it’s somehow silly to use it.

        Maybe the soldiers "puffed" the Dutch hemp? So we heard a strange noise.

    There was no fire extinguisher! Definitely! A fine would not hurt! Yes and check the first-aid kit ...

      Judging by the size of Striker, there should be at least 5x10l of fire extinguishers. And the firefighters in vain put their car on the trunk, but how does it shorten something and does it go wild? Not professionally. A fine of 10 times the size - state and explosive equipment.

      There are no traffic cops on them, they would have carried out THAT and checked the first-aid kit.
