—Stryker IFV on the offensive

The Stryker IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) is a versatile multipurpose combat support vehicle used by the United States. The IFV weapon configuration depends on the loaded infantry.

Official description

The Stryker Infantry Fighting Vehicle is the newest development in multipurpose support vehicles. It comes equipped with standard light anti-armor missiles capable of accurately taking down enemy aircraft with great ease even while on the move. Its great speed, the highest among its peers, allows it to effectively perform hit and run tactics. The Stryker can be deployed through the "Bloodhounds" support power as well.

But the Stryker's greatest strength lies in its ability to adapt to almost any situation presented to an Allied commander. This vehicle houses a complex weapons system which allows any infantry that enters it to integrate their weapon into the turret of the Stryker. This allows the IFV to quickly be equipped to handle almost any problem efficiently. Since Tanya is the only Allied heroine that can enter an IFV, the Stryker will gain a powerful portable Mercury mode when she enters the vehicle.[note 1][1]

Overview

The Stryker IFV serves as the jack-of-all-trades unit for the United States. Available at Tier 1, it functions as a troop-carrying vehicle and at the same time, an anti-aircraft light vehicle of the US ground forces. Compared to the equivalents of other subfactions (Archon AMC and Tsurugi Powersuit), it trades armor for speed, making it very useful for harassment tactics and rapid response. Uniquely designed as a multipurpose combat support unit, the Stryker is extremely versatile and capable of performing a variety of roles, including anti-infantry, anti-air, and vehicle repair, depending on the infantry unit garrisoned within.

Loading an Engineer converts the IFV into a mobile repair vehicle, enabling quick field repairs and effectively counters Terror Drones. Multiple Engineer-loaded IFVs can stack their repair effects, restoring the health of friendly vehicles with incredible speed, allowing the unit-under-repair to withstand huge amounts of damage. Note that it cannot repair aircraft, unlike Tech Machine Shops which can auto repair.

Other useful combinations include Siege Cadres and Riot Troopers, as the extra mobility the Stryker grants them allows one to pick off enemy buildings, garrisoned buildings or infantry easily.

  • Versatile unit due to a variety of IFV configurations and quick weapon switches.
  • Great speed.
  • Improves the mobility, and in some cases, enhances the weapon of on-board infantry.
  • An Engineer IFV combo turns into a mobile repair vehicle, enabling quick field repairs.
  • Good escorts for fellow Allied vehicles with a mix of loaded and unloaded IFVs in different configurations.

  • Lightly armored and fragile.
  • Vulnerable against anti-armor threats.
  • Default weapon is not very effective against armored tanks and structures.
  • Micro intensive.
  • Low survivability passenger rate.

Notes

  1. The official description incorrectly states that Tanya will activate a portable Mercury Uplink while inside the Stryker IFV, which is no longer the case as of version 3.3.3 (she activates a laser gun instead, see Configurations).
