The National Guard of Ukraine received 27 M113 tracked armored personnel carriers from the United24.

The armored personnel carriers will help the National Guard of Ukraine to counter Russian invaders more effectively.

They will provide fire support to units in combat, evacuate the wounded, and deliver ammunition and rations to the front line.

Each transferred APC can accommodate up to 13 servicemen.

The vehicle protects the crew and troops inside from small arms bullets and shell fragments.

As previously reported, the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy together with enterprises of the fuel and energy industry of Ukraine have purchased M113 armored personnel carriers for the “Steel Border” brigade.

The vehicles were purchased in a European country. The vehicles were in storage and were modernized before being shipped to Ukraine.

Tracked APCs are already helping border guards destroy Russian invaders. They are also used for medical evacuation.

23 enterprises contributed to help the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine in the purchase of armored vehicles. These are, in particular, the companies of the nuclear, oil and gas, electricity and coal industries, as well as the companies of the distribution system operators and the gas transmission system.

The M113 armored personnel carrier is the main tracked armored personnel carrier, which has been in long-term service with mechanized troops of the United States Army and many armies of other countries of the world. The crew of the APC consists of two people: the driver and the commander. The vehicle is capable of carrying up to 11 amphibious assault personnel. Also, several dozen specialized vehicles were created on the basis of the armored personnel carrier.

For the most part, M113 are used to transport infantry, rations, weapons and ammunition to the front line, as well as for evacuation purposes.
