[b]Height (Battroid Mode):[/b] 11.6 meters
[b]Length (Tank Mode):[/b] 6.98 meters
[b]Weight:[/b] ~16.95 tonnes
[b]Tank Mode:[/b] The Stryker's standard mode. While not as tough as the Centurion, it is much more mobile and it's lighter weight allows for the Striker to better navigate rough terrain using it's hover jets.
[b]Battroid Mode:[/b] The Stryker's main combat mode. Not as tough as Tank form, but capable of making better use of terrain, and the only form that can use certain weapons.
[b]Gerwalk Mode:[/b] An alternate form which gives a balance between defense and combat.
[b]Tomahawk Remote Weapon System:[/b] When the terrain is too rough or the location is too small for the Stryker to follow the ground troops, the pilot can send in a Tomahawk RWS to continue providing direct support. The Tomahawks can be given various mission loadouts, chosen when released from the Stryker.
[b]Mission Loadout:[/b] In order to best support the ground troops, Strykers can have their turret section equipped with different modules.
[b]Shield:[/b] When in Battroid mode, the Centurion can unfold a shield from it's 120mm Smoothbore Guncannon.
[b]Assault Bayonet:[/b] A small blade that folds out from under the 30mm Gatling Guncannon. Used for close-quarters combat with JAM forces. While technically usable in Tank and Gerwalk modes, it is generally impracticable to try to use the blade in anything other then Battroid mode.
[b]Heavy Mortars:[/b] [b].50 Caliber Anti-Personnel Machine Gun:[/b] A powerful anti-personnel machine gun, mounted on the Centurion's turret in Tank and Gerwalk mode. It is not usable in Battroid mode, however.
[b]Heavy Assault Missiles:[/b] Powerful secondary missile launchers mounted to the sides of the Centurion's turret in Tank and Gerwalk mode, and on the Centurion's shoulders in Battroid mode. The missiles are much larger then the typical missile used by the FAF, and are meant to demolish structures (and anything else that happens to be in the way).
[b]30mm Gatling Guncannon:[/b] The Stryker's main combat weapon. Chassis mounted in Tank and Gerwalk mode, and hand-carried in Battroid mode, the Gatling Guncannon is a rapid-fire weapon capable of shredding most JAM. While each individual shell is not as powerful as the Centurion's Smoothbore Guncannon, the increased rate of fire makes up for it when used against lighter targets. The smaller caliber shells are not as effective against armored targets, however.
[b]105mm Smoothbore Guncannon:[/b] When using the Mobile Gun System module, the Stryker is equipped with a lighter version of the Guncannon used by the Centurion. However, due to the Stryker's lighter frame, the Guncannon can only be used effectively in Tank mode, even though it sticks out over the Stryker's shoulder when in Gerwalk or Battroid mode.
