AUSA 2019: GDLS, Kongsberg team for Stryker improvements

15th October 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Land Systems has teamed with Kongsberg to jointly pursue the US Army’s next phase of Stryker lethality improvements and production.

The US Army Requirements Oversight Council decided in the spring to apply the 30mm Medium Caliber Weapon System to the Stryker A1. This more mobile and better protected vehicle will serve as the basis for the future Stryker fleet; and the army has decided to outfit three brigades of Double-V Hull Stryker A1 Infantry Carrier Vehicles with the 30mm turrets.  

General Dynamics Land Systems and Kongsberg originally developed a Stryker with a 30mm turret for the US Army’s 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Germany under an urgent operational need in 2017. The companies have upgraded the system according to the customer feedback, and will now offer the solution as a lethality improvement to the army’s Stryker fleet.
