Shouldn't it be the other way around?

The US Army doesn't use LAV-25s, though.

Kinda surprised that the 82nd didn't get Stryker Dragoons.

Isn't the Striker too big for airborne ops?

Grossman you hit the nail. Yes almost as immobile as an M1AA. Stryker is appalling waste IMO. Should have all had LAV.

Strykers, without the slat armor, are C130-transportable. You do need to dismount the RWS, though, that's too tall to fit up the ramp.

Is slat armour bolted on?

The army evaluated both. The LAV was chosen over the Stryker because they could fit one more in a C-17.

IIRC the Styker is air transportable in a C-130 with a waiver. So its an issue where they can JUST get it in…
