Title: ARN for M113 and M113 based variants
Post by: Diana Alan on May 17, 2014, 10:39:43 AM
Do we hold the ARN lists for the M113A1 in the REMLR database?

What about the M113 variants like the M548 TLC Cargo Carrier, the M577 Command carrier or the Fitter's Carrier (and were our fitter's carrier the M579 variant?)

Where I have the information (and Time) I have been adding Cents, ASLAV, M113, Leopards etc.  However I do not have any of the M113 pages, and only some of the tilley pages.

Does anyone know the current disposition of the M113-FSV with Saladin turret?

134-700 (formerly 134-176) was the prototype.
134-701 is in the Tank Museum
134-702 is in transit to the Tank Museum.
134-703
134-704 Aus Armour Museum, Cairns (ex-Jacques Littlefield collection USA).
134-705
134-706
134-707 Australian War memorial
134-708
134-709
134-710
134-711
134-712
134-713
134-714

There are also:
one in the Tank Museum
one in Broken Hill
one in John Belfield collection
six dismantled and sold to NZ

That leaves two unaccounted for but I'm also wondering which ones tie up with which numbers?

Thanks Stephen

I had heard it was on its way but didn't want to say where it was till it arrived.

Diana  :)

BTW: have you noticed that it has been painted up with the same hull/tactical sign markings as 134-702
