Singapore Technologies Kinetics (ST Kinetics) is proposing an upgrade package for the widely fielded M113 tracked armored personnel carrier. The modernization solution offered include replacing the vehicle’s powerpack, adding new suspension kit and improve the driver’s station and troop transport compartment.
To improve protection and fire power, the vehicle can be equipped with the company’s ADDER remote-controlled weapon station or STK 40/50 protected weapon cupola. Both can be armed with 7.62mm and 12.7mm machine gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher. Side-installed vision blocks and firing block can be integrated to the hull.
The M113 armored carrier is still fielded by numerous armed forces worldwide. Some have modernized their entire fleet or part of it.
