Over its passenger compartment, the Stryker ATGM mounts an Elevated TOW System (ETS) twin-tube launcher that is compatible with all TOW missile variants. The ETS mast raises 0.5m (20") above the hull roof to help enable the vehicle to make use of hull down positions. The 1400kg (3100lb) ETS incorporates a CCD televsion daylight sight as well as a second-generation FLIR night sight. The ETS also has four M6 smoke grenade launchers mounted on its right side. Ten missiles are stowed in the vehicle in addition to the 2 in the launcher: a rack to the loader's left holds 3 missiles, a rack to his right stows 6 missiles, and a floor rack contains a single missile. Reloading is accomplished through a hatch on the rear hull roof by elevating the ETS to +40°, and can be completed in under 2 minutes. The commander's MG needs to be folded down before the missile launcher is fired. The M1134 served in mobile gun system platoons until the Stryker MGS could be fielded.
