Description Extended Information
 
Easy Model EM35005 US Army M113A1 Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle - "Booze Hounds", Vietnam, 1969 (1:72 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 1:72 scale replica of a US Army M113A1 Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle nicknamed "Booze Hounds", that saw action in Vietnam during 1969. Sold Out!
