Stryker M1129 MC

(Mortar Carrier)

This Mortar Carrier Stryker variant will be responsible for medium indirect fire support and will use a heavy, vehicle mounted M121 120mm Mortar to lay down some serious indirect fire (great to cover and support other advancing Strykers).

Unlike the other Strykers (ICV, MGS and ATGM), the MC won't have defensive smoke grenades by itself, however it can launch Smoke Rounds using it's mortar in order to provide support and a forward troop concealing smokescreen.
