This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Due to its low cost and great reliability the troop carrier M113 presented itself as a valid base for various anti-tank weapons systems such as TOW missiles or an anti-aircraft gun such as this version. The M163 was developed around a 20 mm gun "Vulcan". Rotating barrels (with a rapid fire power of 6000 rounds per minute) were created for anti-aircraft use. The whole system is based on a simple, open turret with the munitions loaded on the inside of the vehicle. The M163 is not only used for anti-aircraft defense, but also as infantry ground support vehicle because of its enormous fire power.
