Here's the next of the M113 rebuilds, the Viet-Nam era M113 ACAV
Thanks for this cute unit.
can you tell us what it was used for?
Nice one, ripptide. There's been a debate going on about upgrade paths for cavalry -- this should DEFINITELY fit in there somewhere ...
@Mr. Will -- armored recon & general mayhem-making. "ACAV" is short for either "Armored Cavalry" or "Air Cavalry" depending on context.
there' a bit about its history in the readme Mr. Will, basically it was an up-armoured and up-gunned version of the basic M113 that was used in Viet-Nam
Yes! I now have the full line:
Motorized Infantry (truck) ---> Mobile Infantry (APCs) ---> Mechanized Infantry (IFVs)
Thanks again for another beautiful unit.
doh...i missed this one. now i can get rid of the desert version of this unit and use the one that was the Real McCoy for my Indochina war mod.
If I'm right it was used to be amphibious...
I use it for an American UU replacing the mech infantry. It has better attack than it's counterpart. Not too accurate but what the hell.
