Also if you notice there is a box between the weapon system and the FS3 (LRAS3) that is the INS. The FS3 (Fire Support Sensor System) is the Fire Support version of the LRAS3. Looks the same, operates somewhat the same, just has some diffrent software that allows the crew to Laser Designate targets for laser guided weapons. But the Laser Designating Module (LDM) is not mounted in any of these pics. Ric

Once again Ric you came through with the intel to help. Thanks sir.

and of course I just noticed that this particular variant is way off course. I know for a fact that no M1131 w/FS3 has been issued with 8 step rings or the DVE mounted in front of the driver. So my question to Trumpeter, which I am sure they read these, when are you guys going to start producing a proper model of the STRYKER series?? Ric

My question for trump is "will you do a new hemtt kit?"
OCT 01, 2008 - 01:54 PM
I'd hardly call it "way off"! You don't have to attach all the step rings. Whats "normal"? Front left only? The DVE seems to be a persistent problem alright: but not a showstopper for someone with even basic skills. I'm just glad someone has committed to doing the entire range along with all their other modern range at a price I (and lots of others) can afford.... Keep it up trump.... but do move the DVE please!

Oh yeah, and I forgot about the LDM (laser designating module) that mounts on top of the FS3. Wondering if it made it into the kit???
