We ran into an anti-tank mine, but remained alive – the defenders of Ukraine called the advantages of the M113A armored personnel carrier
The Ukrainian military continues to use American vehicles in the war against Russia. For example, the M113A3 armored personnel carrier. By the way, he saved the lives of our defenders.
So, Andrey, the driver of the M113A3 armored personnel carrier, shared his impressions about the car. According to a fighter from one of the separate brigades of the Marine Corps, the armored personnel carrier is fast and easy to operate.
Saved from an anti-tank mine
Andrei noticed that he was satisfied with the American armored personnel carrier. Among the advantages of the M113A3, he singled out the fact that the vehicle is armored, fast, and also easy to control.
There was a case when they ran into an anti-tank mine, the crew, of course, was shell-shocked, but everyone survived. The front roller was torn off, later they were able to pull it back, repaired it, and now it is back in service,” Andrey noted.

Note that the military himself comes from Berdyansk. While his hometown is under occupation. We hope that very soon it will be possible to release him and drive the occupiers out of there.
The man himself said that in April 2022 he managed to escape from the occupation. After that, he immediately turned to the military registration and enlistment office. Andrey is a teacher of Ukrainian language, literature and history by education . Before that, he did not serve in the army. But considerable experience as a trucker and working with equipment allowed him to become a driver.
Andrei has no doubts that he will return home. And that both over his native Berdyansk, and over other cities of Ukraine, the flag of Ukraine will again flutter.
We did not come to them, we did not ask the Russians for anything. It was not we who woke them up at five in the morning with rocket attacks. This should not be the case in the modern world, but if the enemy comes to us with weapons, we will take them out with weapons,” he stressed.
