Question:

I've seen a number of addon-armour kits for the M113 either being introduced into service or being offered for sale.

Which one of them is the most well-protected that you know of to ever be at least prototyped?

Thanks in advance.

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Another up-armoured M113 FV432 Mk3

EDIT: Corrected.  Was excited because this one has its lower frontal hull covered up with applique armour.

Except the driver is on the wrong side.   I'd suggest that was a FV432, not an M113.

Dang.  Which means that I have not yet found an M113 upgrade without the lower frontal hull exposed......

What about a 25-30mm Bushmaster instead of the GAU unit?

Only in the interest of ammunition conservation for the servicing of targets, have to stretch those defense dollars :P

The Talha is the first Pakistan's indigenously developed armored personnel carrier. The Talha uses chassis of the US M113 APC, but is better protected. Similar vehicles are offered by Turkey, however Pakistan went for an indigenous design in attempt to have a cheaper locally-built APC.

   Main armament of the Talha APC is a 12.7-mm machine gun, located on top of the roof. Various bolt-on armor can be added for enhanced protection.

   This APC can carry 11 fully equipped troops. There are two firing ports from either side - a feature that the M113 was lacking. Troops enter and leave via the rear ramp.

   Engine compartment of the Talha APC can accommodate either a Detroit Diesel 6V53T engine, developing 275 hp, or a Ukrainian sourced UTD-20 diesel, developing 330 hp.

   Talha armored personnel carrier is fully amphibious and can cross water obstacles virtually without any preparation.

   The army of Pakistan planned to buy 2 000 of these armored vehicles by 2010, however it is unknown if these vehicles were delivered due to funding problems. To date only Iraq has ordered 44 of these vehicles. Current production status of the Talha APC is unknown.

 

Variants

 

   Saad armored personnel carrier, fitted with more powerful engine. This APC has an extended hull and is better protected. It is armed with 14.5-mm machine gun;

   Mouz anti-tank guided missile carrier, armed with RBS-70 missiles. It has a crew of four;

   Maaz anti-tank guided missile carrier, armed with Baktar Shikan missiles. It has a crew of four;

   Al Hamza infantry fighting vehicle, armed with a 25-mm cannon;

   Satab command post vehicle;

   Muhafiz internal security vehicle;

   Al Hadeed armored recovery vehicle, fitted with a crane and hydraulic winch;

   Al Qaswa armored logistics vehicle. It can be used for carrying fuel, ammunition and supplies.
