Description Extended Information
 
Corgi US51105 US Army M113 Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle - 8th Infantry Division, Vietnam, 1968 (1:43 Scale) "Television brought the brutality of war into the comfort of the living room. Vietnam was lost in the living rooms of America - not on the battlefields of Vietnam."
- Marshal McLuhan

The Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle (ACAV) was a derivative of the US Army's standard M113 armored personnel carrier. APCs such as the M113 were designed to ferry a squad of troops into battle and protect them from small arms fire. Once the vehicle came to a stop, a rear ramp would be lowered so that the troops riding inside the carrier could disembark behind the vehicle without being exposed to enemy gunfire. The ACAV was an upgunned variant that featured a .50-caliber machine gun and shield over the commander's hatch, plus two M-60 machine guns and shields near the rear cargo hatch for additional fire support.

Pictured here is a marvelous 1:43 scale diecast replica of the famed M113 Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle, which was attached to the US Army's 8th Infantry Division. Like the other vehicles in the "Unsung Heroes" line, this M113 has been 'muddied' to give it a more weathered appearance. Sold Out!
