12mm M113 ACAV from Butlers Printed Models

One American M113 Armoured Cavalry Assault Vehicle (ACAV). Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M113 is a fully tracked armoured personnel carrier (APC) that was developed and produced by the Food Machinery Corp (FMC). The M113 was sent to USAREUR to replace the mechanised infantry's M59 APCs in the 1961/62 time frame. The M113 was first tried out in combat in April 1962 after the United States provided the South Vietnamese Army (ARVN) with heavy weaponry such as the M113, under the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (MACV) program. Eventually, the M113 was the most widely used armoured vehicle of the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War, earning the nickname 'Green Dragon' by the Viet Cong as it 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.

This model is supplied with enough parts to make many different variants of M113 ACAV.  The model is supplied with 3 turrets so that you can swop them out to make different versions.
