Hi guys,

Please take a look at this link, this shows 2 Strykers with additional armor in front.
Is this custom built or perhaps part of the new V-hull types of Stryker ?

Those look like CIP panels.

Those are not double V hull Strykers, just regular original ones and these things indeed look like CIP.

since they both have the WIN-T up-grade. (photo - 10-2014)
I'd conjecture that the CIP's are ontop of the extra armor a "double v-hull" armor package comes with. It looks to push the front bumper a bit more forward than - without.

I have seen differing bolt patters on the frontal lower "diamond-ish" shaped armor panels, that helped distinguish 'single' v.s. 'Double "v" ' . . .(( but my knowledge is web based! ))

Let me repeat: the Strykers in the image posted at the top of this thread are not DVH, they are older standard hull ones. And the panel at the front is CIP.

Here is the same type of CIP on a different Stryker:

Thats a STRYKER Soldier Network Extension (SNE) by the looks of it. M1126/M1127. I haven't heard which from the PM which it was based off of.

So the vertical (upper) part and the diagonal (lower) part are two different items.

I double and triple concur with Pawel, standard Stryker with CIP on front. Also note CIP on the left storage rack next to water can.

i don't know if this matters or not but I found a pretty simple way to make the front cip panels...afv clubs strykers come with an extra sprue and on it is a front mount for the tow bar on the mgs strykers...I used this with the front details sanded off and a Tamiya cip panel for the hood of their hmmwvs...little bit of cutting, gluing, and sanding and mounted on the front mount and it looks the part...if I can figure out how to post photos now ill upload one soon
