Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicle

Converted M113 Armored Personnel Carrier for use during Vietnam conflict. Two M60 machine guns were mounted, one either side of the rear hatch, and fitted with protective gun shields. An armoured gun shield/turret combination was also added to the commanders cupola to afford him protection when manning the .50 cal machine gun. The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (aka Blackhorse) coined the term ACAV which soon became the 'official' designation of this modified M-113.
