A little birdie sent me this…

Active protection systems actually destroy enemy missiles and RPGs before they can strike their target. While tanks always seem to be first in line for these, ironically, it is light armor such as the Stryker and the Bradley that need it most.

Currently, our Army only uses passive protection, such as slat armor, and bolt on armor. But as the second half of the document shows, we are testing the Trophy system on a Stryker.

  1. Good to see they are testing. The next question is will they accept it or find some reason to reject it. The NIH syndrome has afflicted the US services for a long time. It was like pulling teeth to get the Air Force to accept the Swedish modification of the Sidewinder.

  2. Not Invented Here. Organizational resistance to any product or process developed outside the organization or entity.
