LONDON (BNS): BAE Systems and the Brazilian Army have completed the upgrade of the service's 100th M113 to the M113A2 Mk1 (M113BR) configuration, marking a significant milestone for the programme.

This modernisation extends the service of the Army's fleet and increases its defence capabilities.

BAE Systems received a contract to work with the Brazilian Army to convert 150 M113B vehicles to the M113A2 Mk1 configuration in December 2011.

The team reuses existing vehicle hulls, hatches, and ramps to replace or upgrade components such as engines, transmissions, and cooling systems. As part of the contract, the company is also transferring technology into the new vehicles and is working with the Brazilian Army to train personnel on the upgrade and maintenance of the vehicles, the Company said.

The M113, one of the most versatile of military tracked vehicles, can transport 12 troops plus a driver and is capable of amphibious operation, extended cross-country travel over rough terrain, and high-speed operation on improved roads and highways.
