The M113 Armored Personal Carrier for many years served the Tarakian Military faithfully, being used across all major branches but the Navy, the M113 was seen as a modular and adaptable platform for many uses, such as Improved TOW Vehicle, Command Vehicle, Mortar Carrier and light infantry support, however as the Tarakian Army received Soviet Armored Personal Carriers from Neighbors Sal-Kar and Morskoj the Tarakian Army then issued a request for a new vehicle able to transport infantry, the resulting in the M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle.(Short History will add more later.)
