Subject: M113's With Weird Cargo
Factor X    10/15/2005 1:07:23 AM
On my way to work today, I saw a train full of M113's. I work on a marine base. I saw several regular M113's, M557's, some 13's with some kind of launcher on their back... But the one thing that got me curious - about a third of the M113's had two big tall boxes on their tops - outboard, behind the commander's station. Several of them had these boxes. And from the inboard view, it looked as if they housed some kind of air tank or something. They were very prominent and huge, in consideration of the vehicle's overall heigh... But WTF were those things? Only a few had them... Comments?
