Australian M113 Vietnam

The Australian M113 Vietnam APC was used during the Vietnam War as a key asset for the Australian army. In 1958 when the Australian Army decided to revamp its army, two military vehicles were brought in to test and replace the wheeled FV603. This included the M113 taken from the US, and the FV432 from the UK. The M1131 rose as the APC choice and its orders began arriving in Australia from 1964. Between 1965 and 1972, around 200 variants of the M113 were deployed in Vietnam by the Australian Army, before it pulled out of the war in May 1972.

This variant of the M113 armoured personnel carrier was designed to work with the challenging terrain and combat conditions faced in Vietnam. With alterations such as improved ventilation and firepower enhancements, this tank could better withstand the tropical climate and counter enemy positions effectively.

The M1131 APC was equipped with armour protection and capable of carrying a squad of infantry. This meant it was an important vehicle for troop transportation in dense vegetation and rural areas. And ideal for a wide range of missions including reconnaissance, patrols and medical evacuation.

The Australian M113 Vietnam played a significant role in supporting Australian and allied operations throughout the conflict, demonstrating its value as a resilient and adaptable armoured vehicle in challenging combat environments.
