The M113 Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) was first used in combat in April 1962 after the United States provided the South Vietnamese Army (ARVN). The M113 was the most widely used armoured vehicle of the US Army in the Vietnam War and was used to break through heavy thickets in the midst of the jungle to attack and overrun enemy positions. It was largely known as an “APC” or an “ACAV” (Armoured Cavalry Assault Vehicle) by the allied forces. The kit can be built as a standard APC, with an ACAV upgrade, or with Australian modifications. It also comes with driver, commander, gunner, plus engine and rear troop compartment details.
