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
