I have this volume too. Very impressive. It's good to see some coverage of the soldierst as well.

There may even be a volume three.

A Volume three???? Unless there are new prototype strykers to add to the list what else could they add in Vol. 3?

Coverage/discussion on the modifications over the years so the vehicle can be placed in context both at home station and in theatre, MGS, Full Spectrum Spiral 0 non-lethal armament, coverage of the Stryker Brigade as a whole - including the soldiers and other equipment, heavy coverage of the Stryker "In-Action" both at home station, on manuevers, and in Iraq.

HI

A vol 3 may not be called the STRYKER ... A lot of nations use the base vehicle: Canadians, Kiwis and the Irish (IIRC) ..

So a vol 3 of the "series" would make sense in some form.

Here's hoping.

Hello All,
Thanks for posting the review. I didn't even realize these existed. More money for the reasearch shelves.. On the other hand, if your going to build one check out the Stryker/LAVIII thread on the campaign forums.

Dear Charles,

I am very glad you like my new book about the Stryker IAV. I wrote this book especially for my friends serving with the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment based in Vilseck, Germany, who are currently deployed in order to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. Therefore the final page in the book is the most important for me as a lot of comrades already gave the ultimate sacrifice downrange since 2 SCR has been deloyed in August 2007. Besides the modelling we should never forget why these soldiers are sent to war and for whom they do this task.

Kind regards from Munich

Dear Charles,

please stay tuned with WWP as we are planning some more publications about modern U.S. Army and German Bundeswehr equipment up to the end of this year. Feel also free to take a look on my website www.tank-masters.de Within the next days I will upload some photo galleries about the new Axor 1829 A truck and the Leopard 2A6 in action.
