M113 FSV Turret (VAN242) Spotlight


M113 FSV Turret (VAN242) includes two Resin M113 FSV turrets, two Resin M113 FSV decks & two Tank Commander figures.

The first ad-hoc fire support troop was formed in 1967 when the Australians borrowed obsolete American M108 self-propelled guns for fire base defence at Nui Dat and later the Horseshoe. Despite orders against their use in the field, 6 Troop were used on occasion to transport patrols and for convoy escort work.

When the loan ended after six months, the cavalry looked for a more permanent solution, finding it in the M113 Fire Support Vehicle (FSV), an M113 mounting the turret of a Saladin armoured car. These ‘beasts’, as they were often called, arrived in Vietnam in 1970, remaining until the end.

Note: The M113 FSV Turret blister pack does not include the M113; the M113 has to be purchased separately as part of the M113 Platoon box set.
