M 113 in the Modern German Army - Part 1

No other vehicle in the history of modern armoured vehicles has been nearly as successful as the American M113 armoured personnel carrier (APC). The Heer (Army) of the German Bundeswehr also procured this successful vehicle from 1962 onwards, fielding it under the name Mannschaftstransportwagen (MTW) M 113. In the Cold War period, some 4,000 M 113s and variants belonged to the vehicle inventory of the German Army, among them many specialised variants. During their service with the German Bundeswehr, vehicles of the M 113 family were also put through several programmes aimed at improving their combat capabilities and extending their in-service life.
This documentation (requiring four parts due to huge amount of variants) describes and illustrates in detail the use of the M 113 MTW and its variants by the Bundeswehr from 1962 to the present. In part 1:
