Amazing...
Nobody injured and it was still moving by own power afterwards.

Jesus Christ!

I have my doubts about the armor on Strykers but that picture goes a damned long way towards bolstering my confidence in the new vehicle!

Sometimes good luck saves people in many kind of serious situations, but everyone should remember that nothing is invincible.

Appears no bad surprises when machines believed to be invincible get suddenly destroyed by enemy.

I don't think anyone here really believes any weapon is invincible.

I would have to concure with our friend...I doubt that bomb was set correctly to defeat an armoured vehicle. If it was a well set roadside bomb, they would all be hurt.
