Notes: The V-300 series is a 6x6 wheeled armored vehicle manufactured by Cadillac Gage, but was not adopted by the US Army. Panama and Kuwait adopted it.

M-233A1

Notes: This was the US Army's solution to making TOW ATGM launchers more mobile before the advent of the M-901A1, and it is still being used by many countries, including Israel and some US Army National Guard units. It is basically a standard M-113A1 or A2 with a stand for a TOW II ATGM launcher in the passenger area, and racks for reload missiles. The TOW launcher may be raised and lowered through the deck hatch, which is enlarged for this role. The gunner must put his head and chest outside the vehicle to aim and fire the launcher. In Israeli service, this vehicle is also used with the MAPATS launcher.

M-901A1 ITV

Notes: The ITV (Improved TOW Vehicle) is a development of the M-113A2 armored personnel carrier designed to provide mobile antiarmor capability to mechanized infantry formations. The base M-113A2 chassis is equipped with a roof-mounted twin launcher for TOW missiles. This launcher is a "hammerhead" mount that may be raised for firing or lowered to allow the launchers to be reloaded with the minimum crew exposure to hostile fire. The missiles are aimed and fired from a downlinked position inside the vehicle. The launcher may be rotated 360 degrees and accepts any type of TOW missile except the TOW III. The hammerhead mount has been adapted to over a dozen vehicles throughout the world. Besides the US (who deploys them in large numbers), the ITV is used by Egypt, Greece, Jordan, Kuwait, Pakistan, and Thailand.

Twilight 2000 Notes: These vehicles were beginning to be replaced by the M-3 variant of the Bradley in US service before the Twilight War, but most US stocks were returned to duty during that conflict.

M-921 Bradley-LOSAT

Notes: LOSAT stands for Line-Of-Sight Anti-Tank. The M-921 is an M-2A2 Bradley chassis with a 12-round Hypervelocity Missile turret replacing the standard turret. This weapon system is basically in a holding pattern; no further funds have been allocated to its development, but it has not been officially killed, either.

Twilight 2000 Notes: Very few of these vehicles were produced (perhaps a dozen), and all were deployed to Europe.

M-922 Buford-LOSAT

Notes: This is an M-8 Buford airborne combat vehicle with the standard turret replaced by a 12-tube Hypervelocity Missile turret. It does not have the special ammunition storage system that the standard Buford has, nor can the new turret be fitted with add-on turret armor packages (though the hull may still be equipped with these packages). This system was killed along with the standard M-8 Buford, though the rumors of the Bufordís resurrection could mean that this program will also be resumed.

Twilight 2000 Notes: Very few of these vehicles were produced (perhaps a dozen for each division), and all were deployed to the Middle East with the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions.
