General Dynamics and Kongsberg have jointly developed a 30mm turret for integration onto US Army’s Stryker A1 infantry carrier vehicles.

According to Kongsberg, the Army Requirements Oversight Council decided in the spring to apply the 30mm Medium Caliber Weapon System (MCWS) to the Stryker A1. The Army decided to outfit three brigades of Double-V Hull Stryker A1 Infantry Carrier Vehicles with 30mm turrets.   

Responding to an urgent operational need in 2017, the two companies developed a Stryker with a 30mm turret for the US Army’s 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Germany.

The companies will begin equipping new upgrades onto Army vehicles in 2022, if selected.
