Yea Yea, yall now Ive already jumped on the Stryker bandwagon, but we are seeing some promising news from Iraq out of this vehicle. In particular is it's "cage" defense, which is proving to stop RPG rounds from causing major damage. For More info, check out this article...

I saw a segment on FoxNews a few weeks ago and they showed a few Strykers there and I was impressed with the cage design they employ. I wonder if a similar design could be implemented with other vehicles.

A double layer of chain link fence does about the same thing. It works better if spaced 2-3" apart. Cost is a hole lot less but we used it in the 80's on a Special Weapons site I worked at.

Dosent really matter, as long as it makes the shaped/hoolow charge fo of, then the hot gas and shrapnel jet losses some of its energy on the way between the cage and the haul of the vhiecle....

is it true theres some frequency that makes grenade explode?
if its possible wouldn't it be simple to pull all the soldiers out and blast the frequency into the town "neutralizing" all dirty bombs and grenades?

yea i've been reading alot of sci fi books
