M113 ACAV (VBX07)
The M113 ACAV (Armoured Cavalry Assault Vehicle) was developed by the 11th ‘Blackhorse’ Cavalry based on feedback from South Vietnamese units. They fitted an armoured tub for the commander and gun shields for two machine-guns on the sides, converting the M113 into a (rather large) tracked scout carrier.

M125/M106 Mortar Carrier Platoon (VBX09)
The M125 and M106 were variants of the M113 armoured personnel carrier that saw wide spread service during the course of the conflict in Vietnam. The M125 was armed with a M29 81mm mortar while its big brother, the M106 was armed with a M30 4.2in mortar. This allowed both vehicles to provide quick and responsive fire support to the
hard slogging grunts during a fire fight.

Over the next couple of months a whole series of FOW Vietnam boxed sets will be released that have my painting work on the box covers. – this is why my posts have been pretty thin for the last 4 months.
