The M113 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) is a fully-tracked military vehicle designed to transport personnel and equipment in and around combat zones. It was first developed and used during the Vietnam war, primarily in armored cavalry squadrons and in reconnaissance ops. Compared to heavier armored fighting vehicles such as tanks, it is less well armored but significantly more agile. It measures 16 feet in length, 9 feet in width, and 8 feet in height, and it weighs 13.6 tons. On a full tank of gasoline, it has an operational range of 300 miles of travel. Due to its rugged design, an M113's speed is not reduced by nonmagical difficult terrain. An M113's crew and passengers have three-quarters cover, unless they are manning a turret on the top, in which case the gunner only has half cover. M113's can swim across bodies of water by deploying flotation curtains, buttoning up, and using their tracks as propulsion. M113's have firing ports allowing the passengers to shoot out at the enemy. Although originally made by and for the USA, M113's have been fielded at some point by almost every country on earth, whether acquired legitimately or not.

Armament. M113's always have a heavy machine gun turret, but can be equipped with a bewildering variety of secondary weaponry. For example:

  • Smoke grenade launchers, used to generate smoke screens.
  • Flamethrowers, particularly in guerilla warfare.
  • Anti-aircraft missile launchers.
  • Heavier guns such as 20mm autocannons.
  • Mortars.
