This experience provides guests with the unique experience to drive M113’s that have a bonafide military history. These were originally built in the early to mid 1960’s and used by US military personnel and then sold to Israel where they were used since the late 1970’s to move troops around during combat and military exercises. During the mid 1990’s, they were rebuilt and modernized and upgraded to allow more troops inside and to travel farther distances. These were just imported in July of 2020 and are now ready for guests to get some “stick time” behind these combat veterans.
