The Stryker is a main battle tank developed by Tasanove Armaments Bureau, which makes it the only MBT utilized by the Federal Ground Forces that was not designed or co-designed by Federov Defense Corporation. Tasanove Armaments worked on the Stryker MBT as a direct competitor to Federov's former designs in the Mark IV and Mark V. Despite losing marginally in a competition with the Mark VIs, the National Defense Directorate approved of its production due to its high-rating performance. As of 2013, 83,000 Strykers have been produced and utilized as a long-range mobile support platform.
Tasanove's Stryker tanks were designed to compliment the new battle doctrines used by the Federal Ground Forces -- particularly its well-known highly mobile tactics. The primary characteristics that set it apart from the Foxhounds is their ability to travel at high-speeds and accurately engage targets. While it is not as armored as its contemporaries, Strykers use their speed and maneuverability to dodge incoming enemy fire.
Following the newly redesigned mobile strategy of the Federal Republic's Armed Forces, Military High Command commissioned its defense and armament organizations to create a vehicle that could fire accurately while on the move.
