Abstract:

Graphic reports of certain M113 armored personnel carriers destroyed by mines in the Republic of Vietnam are presented. A careful examination of the vehicles shown in each report reveals evidence of a lack of weld penetration at the juncture of the hull plates. A clean separation of the hull plates at the welded joints has been characteristic of each of the mine incidents.
