especially for the wet terrain and rice patties of Vietnam.
The M116 was a cargo carrier and the XM 733 was armor
plated. The XM 733 was made as an escort vehicle for the
cargo carriers. They were equipped with a automatic
grenade launcher in the front, an M60 machine gun on
each side, a 50 caliber machine gun in the middle, and a
60 or 81 MM mortar tube in back (bed). They could go
almost anywhere the foot troops could go. To my
knowledge these vehicles doesn't exist anymore. The book
will preserve the role these vehicles played in Vietnam. This
is a story that needs to be told.
