Indonesia receives first ARISGATOR amphibious vehicles

The Indonesian National Armed Forces have taken delivery of its first five M113 Arisgator amphibious armored personnel carriers from Italy.

According to the ARC, еhe first five amphibious armoured personnel carriers were delivered on board a transport aircraft of Singapore Airlines. The Arisgator is an amphibious version of fully tracked armored personnel carrier developed by the Italian company of ARIS SpA (Applicazioni Rielaborazioni Impianti Speciali).

The M113 Arisgator is a light and reliable amphibious vehicle capable of performing several tasks at very low costs. To improve the amphibious characteristics of the M113 a special oceanic kit has been developed by ARIS, which enables the vehicle to operate safely in ship-to-shore operations as well as rivers.


This kit weighs between 1,350 and 1,700 kg including bow, roof and stern units, all of which are made of light alloy as is the basic M113 series hull.

The Arisgator can carry eight fully equipped troops and can also be fitted with various external weapon stations.
