Yes, a beautiful model. I love the subtle weathering and the straps

To represent a vehicle in Iraq you must have slat. No exceptions. Thus, vehicles like this are home-station or NTC type vehicles.

Note that in Iraq they would not carry all this gear since they do not live in the field and do not have to carry all this stuff (packs). But this is quite correct for vehicles at say the NTC or JRTC or on manuevers. Also, as discussed on another thread here it is okay to cover the roof vent too.

the first Strykers into Iraq ('03) didnt have them, but that quickly changed.

Even with the slat package some vehicles do not have the extended headlights. It's a process, some are slower than others.
