M113 ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIER
An M113 armored personnel carrier (figure 4-5) is a standard evacuation vehicle.
It is lightly armored to protect against small arms fire. It is highly maneuverable and
capable of amphibious operation on inland lakes and streams. The vehicle can
transport ten ambulatory casualties in its normal configuration. The vehicle can
transport four litter casualties by removing the spall liner and installing the litter
suspension kit. (Litter casualties cannot be safely moved if the litter suspension kit is
not installed.) When litter casualties are transported, they are loaded in the following
a. Upper right berth (least seriously injured casualty).
b. Lower right berth.
c. Upper left berth.
d. Lower left berth (most seriously injured casualty).
