Six of the 28 upgraded M-113 armored personnel carriers are now at the Mechanized Infantry Division (MID), Camp O’Donnell, Capas, Tarlac, the Philippine Army (PA) said on Thursday.

These vehicles arrived there Wednesday after leaving its Manila-holding area, Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Noel Detoyato said in a message to the PNA.

The six vehicles arrived in the Philippines late this June.

“Six APCs are already at MID headquarters in Tarlac. Other attachments and armaments will be installed in within 15 days,” he added.

The six APCs will be followed by 18 other units, four of them by July or August.

Fourteen of the M-113s were configured as fire support vehicles, four as infantry fighting vehicles, six as armored personnel carriers, another four as armored recovery units.

The M-113s were supplied by Israeli defense manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd.

The contract, which is worth Php882 million, was signed last June 22, 2014.

Upgrades include installation of 25 mm unmanned turrets, 12.7 mm remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS) and fire control systems (FCS) for 90 mm turrets.
