The Army announced Wednesday that it is planning to divest all of its Stryker Mobile Gun Systems by the end of fiscal 2022.

Seems they are saying bye-bye to Stryker MGS, citing, according to the article, that the gun is obsolete and that the autoloader is not working as designed.

Pros or Cons aside, this was going to happen from day one really. The Stryker was rushed to get to Iraqi, I was part of 3rd Brigade 2nd ID when we went in 03/04 and the vehicle systems were all still going through teething issues.

So we will see what they replace it with or how many new ATGM versions of the Stryker they go with.
