The Stryker IAV (Interim Armoured Vehicle) is a family of eight-wheeled, all-wheel-drive, Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs) produced by General Dynamics Land Systems, currently in use by Stryker Interim-Force Brigade Combat Teams of the United States Army. The armoured vehicle is based on the Canadian LAV III light-armoured vehicle, which in turn was based on the Swiss MOWAG Piranha III 8x8. The Stryker is the U.S. Army's first new armored vehicle since the M2/M3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle in the 1980s.
The combat vehicle of choice for the Armys Interim Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs), it is a highly deploy-able wheeled armoured vehicle that combines firepower, battlefield mobility, survivability and versatility, with reduced logistics requirements.
The vehicle was named in honor of two Medal of Honor recipients: Pfc. Stuart S. Stryker, who served in World War II, and Spc. Robert F. Stryker, who served in the Vietnam War.
