|Striker Combat Vehicle Reconnaisance (Tracked)|
The Striker vehicle can be found in the Formation Reconnaisance Regiments of the British Army acting as a mobile anti-tank platform. The vehicle provides these units with a fast, hard hitting anti-tank missile launch platform that is capable of keeping up with the latest Main Battle Tanks, engaging them and destroying them. Although it would not be able to go toe to toe with a Tank its not designed to. The Striker vehicle is suposed to hide within cover, only emerging when it is ready to fire. The gunner inside the vehicle, (or outside up to 100 metres away with the separated sight,) will target the enemy vehicle and fire either a single missile, or an entire volley, whichever he or she feels is neccesary to get the job done.

1. SWINGFIRE MISSILE LAUNCHER:
A rapidly deployable and fireable anti-tank weapon the swingfire missile is an excellent tank killer, wire guided as it is though it still has a range of 4 km.
