The Striker has a 2-tube launcher and elevated mast, extending 0.5 m above the roofline. It is compatible with the whole family of TOW wire-guided, optically-tracked missiles. Missiles of the Stryker ATGM have a range of about 3 000-4 500 meters, depending on the version. They penetrate up to 900 mm of steel armor behind explosive reactive armor. If required, this vehicle can launch bunker busting missiles. Missiles are loaded into the launcher manually.

Vehicle is fitted with a battlefield information management system, which links the ATGM carrier with similar vehicles and command posts. This system also provides position information through a GPS receiver.

       The M1134 ATGM carrier is based on the M1126 ICV , which in turn is based on the Canadian LAV III . Vehicle is powered by a Caterpillar 3126 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 350 hp. Engine and transmission can be removed and reinstalled in less than an hour for service and maintenance. Vehicle has 8x8 configuration, however it can be switched to 8x4. It has a central tyre inflation system, which is adjusted from the driver's station. This missile carrier is not amphibious. The M1134 can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules and larger military transport aircraft.
