The US State Department has made a determination approving a possible foreign military sale to Thailand of Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicles (ICV), the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 26 July.

In a package worth $175 million, Thailand has requested 60 Stryker ICVs and 60 M2 Flex .50 calibre machine guns. Also included are spare parts, tools and test equipment, AN/VAS-5 Driver's Vision Enhancer, AN/VIC-3 vehicle intercommunications system, and other related elements of logistics and programme support.

The Stryker vehicles fill a gap in Thailand’s armoured vehicle fleet between light infantry soldiers and heavy mechanised units.

If the sale goes ahead General Dynamics Land Systems will be the prime contractor.
