The M1128 MGS is a tier 8 Tank Destroyer originating from the United States, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the B1 Centauro 105, and unlocks a tier 9 Unlock Token, which can be used on the CRAB, B1 Draco, B1 Centauro 120, Leopard 2A6, or M1A2 Abrams SEP v.3.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) received reduced damage.
  • Weapon selection: vehicle has several weapon options that you can switch between during battle.
  • Magazine loader: allows you to fire several rounds without reloading.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Possessing heavy and accurate firepower with high fire rate on a light, nimble frame, the M1128 MGS "Stryker" is a powerful long-range killer. One of the faster vehicles in Armored Warfare, it is capable of rapidly relocating when in danger. It must use this mobility to survive, as its armor only protects against light autocannon fire at best.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • High mobility
  • High camo rating
  • Powerful burst damage
  • High rate of fire
  • Excellent gun depression (off the rear)

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lightly armored
  • Large target

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Gunner Sight, Improved Autoloader, and various ammunition upgrades will offer a much more varied arsenal. Upgrading to the Caterpillar 3412 Diesel Engine boost the already stellar mobility. An upgrade which can vary in importance to each player is the M68A1E4 Mk. II cannon, which provides a magazine of nine shots which can be individually fired at a faster rate, but with a longer 11 second reload for the entire magazine.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Viktor Kirsanov, for rate of fire and aim speed
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter

History[edit | edit source]

Designed by the United States, this armored fighting vehicle was created as a domestic alternative to the Canadian-built LAV III. Developed with the prediction that the future of combat would be of lower intensity than previous generations, the M1128 Stryker MGS entered service with the US Army in 2007 with 142 units. Presently, production has been placed on hiatus while the vehicle is being reviewed as an air-droppable candidate for the Airborne Division. With a short service history, the vehicle has only seen combat in Western Asia.
