US BTR Stryker left without active protection systems

The American Stryker armored personnel carriers were left without active protection. According to Defense Blog, the Pentagon refused all three options proposed by KAZ following the results of their tests.


The U.S. Department of Defense has released a report on operational testing and evaluation of all active defense systems used on the Stryker armored personnel carrier. As follows from the document, in just 2018 - 2019, three active protection systems were tested: the American KAZ Iron Curtain, the German KAZ StrikeShield from Rheinmetall and the Israeli KAZ Trophy Light. None of the systems according to their characteristics was suitable for installation on armored personnel carriers.

We are actively working to provide Abrams, Bradley and Stryker armored platforms with active protection systems. The main driving force here is the ever-growing threat of the use of anti-tank guided missiles, as well as anti-tank grenade launchers

- stated in the Pentagon.

In April last year, the U.S. Army requested a one-year delay to complete the testing of active defense systems, but the decision was made earlier.

Prior to this, it was reported that, according to the results of the tests, their own active protection systems received the American ABT Abrams and the BMD Bradley. Israeli KAZ will be installed on both cars: Trophy and Iron Fist, respectively.

The U.S. Army is also developing its own modular active defense system, more like a puzzle with an open architecture, for which equipment suppliers will be able to offer radars, optical sensors and optoelectronic suppression systems, as well as various schemes for destroying attack charges.

It is possible that Stryker armored personnel carriers will receive an American active defense system in the future.

    There is a threat, a protection complex is needed. Will they do it yourself, the very best?

      And now the threats will still be added. The Americans are not Russian. In Syria, when the Kurds blocked the American convoy, fire was opened. The 14-year-old teenager was killed. Hopefully next time they will not throw stones.

        Everything is complicated / simple!
        At the local level, anything can happen! BUT, the big commanders of the same Kurds are not waiting for such frail BABOS from whale !!! For their sake, they will outfit anyone, even "their" !!!
        So it was, is and will be!

          Unfortunately, these were not Kurds, the MilitaryMaps website where I took the information refuted my own news. It was the local Arab population of Syria. Well, I think that the Kurds will soon catch up. The war with ISIS goes into a protracted conflict of interests between the United States, Turkey and Syria with Russia. This is bad. But we ourselves gave Erdogan such an excuse. The reason to be unpunished for our deeds and actions, flirting with him.

            in the video, I vryatli different Kurd from the Syrian, and you most likely too yes so all the rules.
            but the view clearly shows the Arabs with AK cheerfully naughty in the Yankees. apparently the Yankees got a little of everyone there ... request

            quite possibly not. Americans from the territories of the Kurds proudly retired, giving the Kurds complete freedom in communication with Turkey. Now it seems that the Americans and the Kurds do not intersect in the zones of occupation, and the Kurds vryatli deliberately climb into the American zone. they have fun without it.

            how can I say .. while I see that the offensive of the Syrian troops does not stop and Russia is providing military and diplomatic support to the Syrians. Syrians, not Turks.
            what Erdogan decided for himself and how things really are, it seems like “two big differences” wink

              Well, God forbid. I have already noticed Erdogan’s imbalance, the ability to rush from one extreme to the other, which the United States uses, pushing him under the blow of Russia, and in every way interfering with the final rout of the militants in Syria. I hope he has enough brains not to do this?

                so it is understandable. a lot of money has been invested in militants, but here they are under the knife. Naturally, he jumps like scalded ... but at the same time he needs C400 and the Turkish stream and nuclear power plants and a lot of money has been invested there. and he already seems to consider this territory to be his own. Well, this, as I wrote, is his personal problem. he cannot act harshly because of Russia, an agreement with which he himself has not fulfilled.
                in short, he has big problems and few funds to solve them ...

                he will probably not quarrel with Russia, but the Syrians will interfere diligently .. as far as possible, which fortunately he does not have much. wink he cannot even send airplanes there ...

      it’s not working out like that. They put the Israeli KAZ on tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

        I didn’t even write an assumption; this is already a joke of humor!
        Although before, the Yankees knew how to rest against the horn and do what is necessary! Now, I’m not sure of that anymore.

    Apparently, the Israeli KAZ Hets a-Dorban (these are the Iron Fist) will be installed on the Strikers. Moreover, it was originally intended for light armored vehicles (up to jeeps).

      Zeyevzeev-they don’t want to put anything in the military! He’s already overweight, it’s like knightly armor was hung on a horse, and here, it will look menacing, but in life it’s ineffective! Being overweight is a strikeer's problem! !!

        Yeah, the lattice is certainly better than KAZ. And the masses are not added, and the size is not increased ...

    The striker is already structurally overloaded, with KAZ, or with dynamic protection, and this is many hundreds of kilograms of weight, it loses both maneuverability and speed, turning into an ideal mess!

    "American KAZ Iron Curtain, German KAZ StrikeShield from Rheinmetall and Israeli KAZ Trophy Light. None of the systems according to their characteristics was suitable for installation on armored personnel carriers", - Russian “Arena-E” is clearly suitable laughing

      In large countries, it is not customary to protect the lives of soldiers, a Betar is nothing more than a means of delivery to the place of junction with the enemy and pekhtur supplies. The mattresses are all the same, in many of their wars confirmed. The point of putting expensive systems on an old wagon?

    Stryker is a lightweight car. And KAZs are quite massive. It is necessary to mount both radars and "shooters" in all directions. And so that all this economy is securely attached and does not interfere with the functioning and shooting of Stryker.

    The Yankees on the bat, a highly specialized machine, are trying to hang everything that is possible, up to the turboplasma disintegrator and the R2D2 robot))

    Clear business, it does not work.

      Well, or what fashionable environmental requirement was introduced into the charter.
