With the last of the Canadian M113s moving towards the scrap heap it would be interesting to try and document some of the history of the 1143 or so M113 series vehicles purchased by Canada over the years.

When were the first M113 APCs purchased for starters?

I think the first ones were purchased during 1965/1966. They would have been basic M113s with literally no Canadian modifications at all. They also may have had the C42 radios mounted and the applicable antennas. Can anyone confirm that? They for sure would have had the original track.

Can we list all the M113 variants used and any modifications specific to Canadian versions?
