The M1126 Infantry Carrier Vehicle (ICV) is an armored personnel carrier used by the United States military (based on the Swiss Mowag Piranha).

General

The Infantry Carrier Vehicle provides protected transport and supporting fire for the infantry squad during dismounted assault. The Stryker is a full time four-wheel drive, selectively eight-wheel drive, armoured vehicle weighing approximately 19t which carries an infantry squad with their equipment. The vehicle can attain speeds of 62mph on paved roads.

The basic infantry carrier vehicle (ICV) provides armored protection for the two-man crew and a squad of nine soldiers.

Digital communications system

The vehicle's commander has an FBCB2 (Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below) digital communications system that allows communication between vehicles through text messaging and a map network, as well as with the battalion. The map shows the position of all vehicles on the battlefield and the commander can mark the position of enemy forces on the map which can then be seen by other commanders

Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station

The ICV has a Kongsberg Remote Weapon Station with a universal soft mount cradle, which can mount either a 0.50 caliber M2 machine gun, MK19 40mm grenade launcher or M240 7.62mm machine gun. It is also armed with four M6 smoke grenade launchers.
