Medical Evacuation Vehicle M1133 Stryker at the Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas.

The enlarged rear compartment is obvious on this Stryker MEV. The sides of the compartment are vertical in contrast to the sloping sides of the front of the vehicle, and the taller roof that slopes downward at the rear can be seen. Hinged red cross placards are provided on each side as well as front or rear; these can be folded closed if desired. The smoke grenade launchers in front of the vehicle commander's station are protected by canvas covers. The soldier's head above the driver's station is printed on the billboard to the rear.
