  1. Found out from high-res pics that the knocked-out M113 belonged to 1st mechanized brigade. If you look closely you can see the outline of the unit badge in the 8th picture–note the sharp white mark in the center.

    how come the M-60A3 don’t have any coax guns or m-85 on the commander copula and they installed a 12.7 over the gun?
