Elements of the 52nd Infantry Regiment recently destroyed a vehicle near Rawad, Iraq, on Sept. 29 after it was determined the vehicle had been used to transport weapons.

Fierce Company is deployed as part of the 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, from Fort Lewis, Wash. The 4-2 SBCT is the first to deploy with all 10 Stryker models to combat, including this anti-tank guided missile carrier.

The vehicle was known to have been used by terrorist to transport and plant road side bombs aimed to attack coalition forces. 

Troops heard about the vehicle and searched for it for several days before finding it during a dismounted patrol.
