US Army puts Stryker’s new 30mm cannon to the test (Jen Judson, Defense News)

The U.S. Army is working to refine the performance of its new Medium Caliber Weapon System — a 30mm, unmanned turreted auto-cannon on a Stryker combat vehicle — through risk management testing and soldier evaluation ahead of production, according to Brig. Gen. Glenn Dean, program executive officer for ground combat systems.

The service awarded a contract to Oshkosh Defense in June to build the system on the Stryker. Oshkosh beat out two other competitors: a General Dynamics Land Systems-Kongsberg Defense team and a Leonardo DRS-Moog team.
