Alternative for M113 3 September, 2018

Korea-based Hanwha Defence Systems unveiled its new vehicle. The AS21 Redback was introduced at the Land Forces 2018 Conference in Adelaide, Australia.

The AS21, an improved version of the Republic of Korea's K21 infantry fighting vehicle, was developed for the Land Forces Project of the Australian Army. Redback was offered as an alternative to the M113AS4 vehicles to be replaced under Phase 3 of the Project. The platform, which is managed by 3 + 8 crews, stands out with its high survavibility. The system, which also has an additional space for turret usage, is also in the structure that allows integration of the active protection system.
