luck. 100 KG bomb can take out an MBT... this was 2.25 larger than that...

This stryker was hit on the right side. It is a bloody APC, it has to give that much of protection. Had the bomb been under the Stryker, the story would have been different.

Absolutely correct. Check out these two T-72 Indian tanks that were knocked out by the LTTE in 1987 in Sri Lanka, with buckets full of TNT buried in the ground.

and T72 armor > stryker...

the styrker is a total waste of tax payers money.. the m113 gavin should have just beeen upgrades, like all other countries have done, and the result would be a much more economic, safer, better, lighter and reliable weapon which is already in great numbers...
id rather be in an uparmored hummer than a stryker
