These things are so awesome. I would join just to drive this thing. They have like hundreds of configurations for this vehicle.

It's a great concept but I heard there were design flaws that could put the soldiers lives at risk by using this vehicle. Can anyone confirm this?

Yeah it's missing a HUGE illuminated sign saying "PLEASE DONT SHOOT ME" in event of usage in theatres with Americans

Bad joke I know guys, but hey you gotta laugh or you DO just cry

Seriusly though this "concept" has been used for decades and the South African one proved itself in SAVING soldiers lives in guerilla warfare situations. Not sure what you heard was "wrong" ? care to illuminate ??

A family friend's son is a Stryker engineer or something of the sort. It's scary because with his physical build, plus his bad joints, I really don't think he should be in the army.
