M113 FoV Capability & Sustainment Program
The sustainability solution meets all of the M113 Family of Vehicles (FoV) for mobility upgrades with the only differences in the specific mission modules required by a variant to meet its mission.
Therefore, M113 variants will all be based on a common mobility platform providing significant saving in logistics such as spare parts inventories and a common maintenance policy.
The FNSS M113A4 solution fully meets the requirements for a modern reliable M113 FoV.
The M113A4 & ACV configuration is based on common subsystems which are in service with Land Forces of Turkey, Middle East and South-East Asia regions.
The M113A4 is NATO certified which is qualified by the original manufacturer. This configuration significantly improves ease of operation, safety, reliability, performance and durability over the M113A1, A2, YPR & AIFV vehicles.
M113A4 delivers significant improvements on mobility and survivability compared to older M113 FoV’ consisting of modern diesel engine and automatic transmission. Reliability and durability have been greatly improved with the installation of the FNSS developed ACV power pack.
This improvement in reliability and durability ensures that during operational deployment, there is a minimum of downtime for the vehicles, thus, releasing valuable maintenance personnel for other tasks. This also guarantees maximum time for operational deployment by the user. This next generation modernized M113A4 FoV provides the user, a reliable simple to operate vehicle with an operational service life more than 20 years.
The solution closely matches the ACV vehicles that have been tested several times between -20°C to +60°C weather conditions and all terrains. In addition, the M113A4 has undergone a full desert mobility testing and which was successfully completed covering over 2000 miles.
