    This is a plastic 1:35 M113A1 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) from
    Academy Plastics. It's for experienced modelers.
    The M-113 APC was developed for the US Army in the late '50s and
    since then has seen use by the armies of over 50 countries. The M113 is a
    fairly small vehicle, yet it can carry a squad of 10 soldiers, and is
    amphibious. It proved especially useful in Southeast Asia where it easily
    traveled through waterlogged jungles. The standard armament of the M113
    is a single .50cal machine gun - subject to many field upgrades!
