General Dynamics LAV/Stryker illustrated growth path

Thanks to Skylancer for the pic!!!

Pretty darn awesome.  What I never realized is how low the horsepower is for the Stryker Double V-Hull.  I understand that it's what the US Army asked for but in comparison the LAV700 must be a speed demon.

I can see future upgrades involving MTU's compact engines becoming more and more attractive as these vehicles gain more and more weight.

Said it before and I'll say it again.  It's nice to see that General Dynamics has gotten its mojo back.  They're working on new concepts and incorporating new but TESTED tech into their vehicles.  With them being the probable builder of the Israeli Eitan APC in the US, I fully expect them to be in the pole position for the Army Stryker replacement program that is coming sooner rather than later.
