Army mounts laser on Stryker MCV....what happened to the FMTV concept?

Story here.
This I don't understand.

Is there really an advantage to mounting everything on the same platform?

The Army is also into long range fires and is mounting its HIMARS system with the FMTV-A2 as its base platform.  Its cheaper than the Stryker.  It has about the same mobility.  Its easier to maintain.  Did I say it was cheaper than the Stryker?

I'm an armor fan but not a purists.

What is the advantage of mounting every system on one platform when it can easily be carried by others?
