Dear friends and followers,

 

In order to win battles the modern battlefield commanders would need highly mobile manpower, which can turn the tide in the most crucial situations. Armor protected vehicles are preferred choice to do this while operating near the enemy. That is why we added M113 – Armored Personnel Carrier to the War Cabinet military equipment to serve into the House of Orange forces. With this new addition to game’s Military Park we are confident that your soldiers will yield the benefits of the mechanized warfare.

M113 is highly recognized machine that become the most widely produced and utilized APC of the Western World and served as a basis for many specialized variants. It's development was started in 1956 by the FMC corporation and first prototype was produced in 1957. M113 is the most massively produced armored vehicle in the world and in service with at least 50 countries.

The main feature of the M113 is a fully enclosed hull welded from aluminum armor. Up to 40% of vehicle components are manufactured from the light alloys. Armor of this vehicle provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters.

The M113 has an internal arrangement which became standard for most of the modern armored personnel carriers. Engine compartment is at the front of the hull from the right side while driving compartment is from the left. Middle and the rear part of the hull are occupied by personnel. Main armament of the M113 is a 12.7-mm machine gun mounted over commander's hatch. It is used to engage both ground and low-flying air targets.

 

M113 provides accommodation for 11 troops.

The first model of M113 was produced with Chrysler 75M petrol engine delivering 209 HP. It was coupled with a General Motors TX-200 manual gearbox. Vehicle has a good cross-country mobility over sand, snow and mud. The M113 is amphibious. On water it is propelled by spinning it's tracks.

 

We are glad to further enhance the War Cabinet game with historically influential pieces of military hardware.

 

Please share your opinion and comments.

Can infantry shoot from the inside while moving?


The truth is only point of view. It all depends on your point of view. Try to get a better understanding of things before you make your judgement.

While on move only APC/IFV will fire.

When idling infantry will be outside and will participate in combat.

Usually APC/IFV has MGs(machine guns) on the roof, so, will there be an option to use 1 infantryman and mount him to man mg?

We would really love to do the infantry option.

Could not commit that it would happen 100%
