The Australians seem to be sending one of the newest variants of the combat vehicle, the M113AS4, upgraded by Australia, to the Ukrainians, which has full armor protection for the turret, unlike the older M113 offered by the United States, for example.
Once again, it is important to emphasize that the M113 is far from the latest in combat vehicle technology; Australia plans to withdraw all its personnel from active duty in 2025. However, these combat vehicles will certainly help the mobility of the Ukrainian armed forces in the area of operations.
The YPR-765 armored transport vehicles donated by the Netherlands, which are similar in many respects to the M113, are already widely used by the Ukrainians.
