Neo Dragon Armor 63119 – 1/72 M1296 Dragoon Stryker ICV – 1st Squadron of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, Vilseck, Germany 2020
In an attempt to boost the firepower of the baseline Stryker,
the US Army introduced the M1296 Dragoon
equipped with a 30mm Mk44 Bushmaster II cannon
and coaxial 7.62mm machine gun in an unmanned turret.
The first Dragoon was delivered to army units in 2017,
with the turret system adding about 2 tons to the vehicle’s combat weight.
This M1296 Dragoon loaded up with soldier’s packs has received a winter whitewash finish,
and it represents a vehicle from 1st Squadron of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment,
a US Army unit based in Vilseck, Germany.
