History

The FV102 Striker was the anti-tank guided missile carrier in the CVR(T) family and served in the British Army. Like the FV101 Scorpion, it is a very unique looking tank. The Striker entered service in 1976 with the Royal Artillery of the BAOR, but since then have been transferred to the Royal Armored Corps where they served information reconnaissance regiments. On March 24, 2003 during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, a Striker destroyed an Iraqi T-55 tank with an anti-tank missile. The FV102 Striker was withdrawn from British Army service as the Swingfire missile was replaced by the Javelin missile in mid-2005.

In-Game Use

As this vehicle is a missile armed destroyer, it only form of firepower is an ATM launcher. But unlike the other single-shot missile armed destroyers, the Striker can fire five missiles in rapid succession followed by a four second reload of the "magazine". It requires getting used to before its potential is made clear. It cannot get close to an enemy tank, as it much keep a distance in order to lock on to the enemies before actually firing the ATMs. It is very fast, which helps to get out of tricky situations. The Striker can curve the shot of the ATM around any objects that might be in the way of the opponent, as any other ATM can do.

Pros and Cons:

Fv101

FV101 Scorpion, the light tank variant in the CVRT family

Pros:

  • Missiles can be fired off in rapid succession, faster than the Raketenjagdpanzer
  • Clip reload time is actually pretty fast
  • Even faster than the FV101 Scorpion
  • Small profile

Cons:

  • Alpha damage of missiles are substantially lower than that of the Raketenjagdpanzer
  • Armor is even worse the Scorpion's, easily damaged by high explosive splashing
  • No turret, weapon is only effective from the front. (Unless the ATM loops around the vehicle, though it takes time and a open space.)
  • Missiles don't work at close range combat, must be used at a far range.

    • I suggest keep on upgrading the striker because the Fv510 has a very weak rapid firing gun and though I don't personally have this vehicle...
