“Pop!” goes the deathtrap

Stryker brigade adapts quickly to fight guerrilla war

Stars & Stripes has a little writeup of the Strykers in Iraq. Nothing particularly special, but there is this little nugget:

[Spc William] Wright and other soldiers say they’ll sometimes hear a pop but won’t stop, only to find out later the Stryker had been hit by a roadside bomb.

Emphasis mine.


  1. Not sure if this is an appropriate forum for asking my question… Heard any feedback regarding use of the BAIS (Battlefield Anti-Intrusion System) by 3/2 Stryker units in Iraq? To my knowledge this is the first fielding of BAIS by the Army. Thanks, Jim
