Being too unskilled at modeling to make slat armor even if it were available, I find myself wishing for the Army to field Strykers with reactive armor if only to make an easier model. How's that for shallow?
Over a year ago I read something on the internet about new armor for the Stryker that was not Mexas, slat, nor reactive armor. However, more recently I read in a military publication (sorry I don't remember which) that reactive armor WAS planned for the Stryker. However, it did not say whether the slat would be replaced with reactive armor, or if the reactive armor would supplement the slat. Soooo, some of us just may get a deployed Stryker without slat. Still, I think slat is very interesting, if not cool looking, and I would love to depict it at least once, if not more.
I've seen some very cool looking AFV Club Strykers and Trumpeter Strykers painted and weathered. Some neat things can be done with the monotone green and sand or brown weathering.
