The experience of the Ukrainian army pushes the United States to return to the idea of strengthening the protection of Stryker combat vehicles
The war in Ukraine forced the US military in Europe to return to the issue of equipping its Stryker combat vehicles with active defence systems.
Since 2016, the US Army has been evaluating active defense systems that could provide increased protection for the Stryker armored combat vehicle, but in 2019 it was decided to temporarily suspend these works after evaluating several possible solutions.
According to Colonel William Venable, project manager of the Stryker Brigade Combat Team, the US military has “renewed interest in the Stryker missile defense system in Europe.”
The US military is currently looking for systems that could be deployed as quickly as, for example, equipping these BBMs with the Common Remote Weapon System with Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Thus, the war in Ukraine is increasingly influencing which decisions will be made by certain countries – in fact, the Ukrainian army is creating new trends in the arms market .
