The Malaysian ACV300 Adnan is based upon the ACV-15 is based on the American Advanced Infantry Fighting Vehicle, which in turn is based on the American M113A1 armored personnel carrier.  Either way, the Malaysian Paint schemes look cool:

Here is a link to post at Missing Lynx forums with some WIP images of an obscure version of the M113 MTAB (Marginal Terrain Assault Bridge) that was built in very limited numbers for use in the Vietnam Conflict/War in Vietnam/SEA Unpleasantness. 

Missing-Lynx Fourms >Modern AFV Discussion Group > ModelProfessor's Vietnam Era M113 Bridge Layer

Additional reading on the M113 MTAB:
DTIC Document (pdf)>USATECOM PROJECT NG 7-8-1018-06 INITIAL PRODUCTION TEST OF MARGINAL I'ERRAIN ASSAULT BRIDGE WITH M113AI LAUNCHER (DAAK02-68-C-0226)

russiantanks.com > M113 and M113A1 Armored Personnel Carrier - Engineer Vehicles

Hyperwar > FM 31-75 RIVERINE WARFARE (19710118)

Someone did produce a 1:35th scale M113 MTAB conversion that is sadly out of production now and close to impossible to acquire.  I suppose at this point Greg/GTX will have to find and purchase one of these rare conversion kits to get the ball rolling again and maybe, just maybe DML/Dragon or AFV Club will provide us plebs with an injection moulded model of this very esoteric version of the M113 'Bucket' APC.  :smiley:

And then I found this, and wondered whether there was any further information on this little beastie!

@newtonk - Great find! 

Definitely one obscure M113 variant that I have not seen before now, or maybe I have and completely forgot about it.  :smiley:
