For those who want to tangle it, some ideas:
- Base kit AFV Club M1132 ESV because of the stowage rack
- Turret scratchbuild
- Hull deck scratchbuild.
- Mk.44 Bushmaster gun from HB CV 9030 or Master metal barrel.
- Wheels from TR M1117 Guardian with "slightly" modified AFV
Club rims.

It’s already in the works...be a tad patient...it only just became operational and available for measurements.

Dragon skipped their Stryker kit years ago. So there is a good change that we WON`T see a Black Plague Stryker kit.

Heard from a reliable source that Trumpeter might be interested.


I'd prefer AFV Club, honestly. Then again, if AFV club does it, we may see it in a year or 10 years.

I have seen six of these heading down I26 bound for Charleston SC unfortunately the turrets were covered with white plastic I think it was plastic but the gun was very clearly defined looks interesting a quality kit would be nice

I wonder if the 30mm Remote Weapons Station turret could be mounted on the M1117 ASV with some rooftop and interior modifications. That would make for an awesome fire support vehicle for regular infantry! (Try it! Try it! Try it!).

The French CRAB armored car does this and it's not even as large as the M1117 ASV.

Why limit the 30mm RWS turret to Strykers only? Anyone think this is feasible?

The ARMY tested the same turret on a Bradley, putting the same turret from the Stryker Dragoon on a Bradley would free up space to increase the size of the squad from 6 to 9 men

Personally, I'd be happy with a Trumpeter Dragoon.

My guess (and hope) is that Trumpeter will do it first.
