Slow motion video of Stryker Mobile Gun Systems & T-72 Main Battle Tanks on exercise.
I keep failing to remember how compact the T-72 is. Ditto with how huge the Stryker MGS is in comparison.
This is another of those back of the brain, hope leadership has it right, thoughts about how our armored vehicles are designed and optimized to be IED resistant instead of biased toward conventional combat.
The ideal IFV/APC for conventional combat looks totally different from one that's aimed at peacekeeping/insurgency/nation building.
I hope this doesn't come back to bite.
