Hi, Richard,

Nice idea, I have an M1127 (AFV CLUB) in the stash, so I'm in.

A lot of extras for this one !

Awesome! Nice of you to join us Martin!

Now I'll see if I can get the campaign administrator off his ass and make it official. Oh, wait! I guess that's me!

That is me enlisted...
Now, to an untrained eye in the mystic arts of American armour... Can one of you wheeled gurus explain the differences between a Stryker and a LAV III ? The chassis and running gear and the hull look the same...

The Stryker is derived from the LAV III but has subtle differences, especially based on the variant use. Re-designed hatches were incorporated to assist in hull integrity for one. Some have been upgraded over time and later variants of the Stryker have a V hull, not a flat bottom hull like the LAV III for dealing with IED's.

I'm sure other guys will be able to add much more detail than I can.

Suggestion for the award:

I’m digging the award submission, Peter!

Anyone else got any ideas they’d like to submit?

Thanks for the info Peter, that's a bit clearer now. And the ribbon looks great as well.
I got my Stryker, it's the Trumpey 01574 M1132 Stryker ESV w/LWMR/SOB, should be getting delivered in a few days.

Look what the postman brought today..
...



The contents look very nice .. and lots of them !! Even what I think is a mask for the raised drivers vision block ? (not sure of the right term). Also some MRE cut outs and strapping strips and a decent sprue of PE.

Looking forward to this campaign starting .... Problem is I want to start the Stryker now lol.... Looks like I may need to buy another ...haha

Lol, I think you're right Peter, after looking at the 10 campaigns I have joined this year (7 active and 3 waiting) I have put the Stryker away and will be refocusing on the immediate ones that need to be finished... "Snow White, Build a photo and What if"...
