Not being amphibious is a major limitation, of course.DRDO"s WhAP vs AMERICAN StryKER | Army to choose from Tata, American Stryker and Humvee for APC
For a country like USA major means for Expeditionary response to any situation is USAF and air arm of USN and USMC. Hence no need was felt for stryker to be amphibious. USA is yet to firm up its plans to launch amphibious assaults on Chinese or North Korean shores..
However, a small modification to make stryker as the amphibious vehicle is not a big deal if Stryker really wants to sell.
