1/35 scale model kit produced by Tamiya.
The M113 is a fully tracked Armoured Personnel Carrier that was developed and produced by the Food Machinery Corp (FMC). The vehicle was sent to United States Army Europe to replace the mechanised infantry's M59 APCs from 1961. It was first used in combat in 1962 after the US provided the South Vietnamese Army with heavy weaponry such as the M113.
The M113 was the first aluminium hull combat vehicle to be out into mass production. Much lighter than earlier similar vehicles, its aluminium armour was designed to be thick enough to protect the crew and passengers against small arms fire, but also light enough that the vehicle was air transportable and moderately amphibious.
The model kit includes the commander and driver figures and the decals for the US Desert version and NATO version.
Bought this kit as a Christmas gift. It arrived quickly and looks great in the box. Pieces are well molded with good definition.
