Maybe you would have more success if you posted your question in the Armor/AFV section.
If you move this question you can also select the Discussion group IDF

I haven't seen any additional photos od that particular IDF M113 setup, so I guess the front part is up to your imagination or make a similar setup per reference photos of other IDF M113s from that urban operation.

Merci bien Robin
Thanks Mario for advice ; if I donot find more will do
The only thing is am not sure the conversion manufacturer have any also becuase they add sand bags just in the middle of the 50 cla support so noway to arm the M113 ? and i could not imagine they have done so in IDF because this version was used on very very difficult moments on strret on Gaza !!!
Will wait for more info if by chance someone got a pic ; I have some 25 others M113 conversions or kit bashing to built !!!!

Michel, unfortunately I don't have the requested photo, however based on the ones I do have, it seems like you can just cut them up and throw them on pretty much any way you like...

Many thanks Israel for your pics ; some of those I had but one on the middle of your post is avery good indication and secure me in the fact that beside they laid a lot of sand bag in the front there is still the 50.cal positionned
So effectivly I will modify one or two sand bags with a grinder to leave space for the front 50.cal bracket holder
As you posted the last photo shown is what they did on the conversion and this is the only pic I got previously
Any how more pics are welcomed as i want by the end of this year achieved minimum 15 different versions of IDF m113 and variants
(Already have 9) !!
Working hardly onto the Tamuz version master to be produced soonly by afriend !!

Note: All of these M113's appear quite overloaded. See how they squat.

Yes indeed !!!

That sand on the bags is probably adding to this overload
Otherwise they prefered probably to be well protected on street cities as they where not very weldome than going fast on field !! LOL
Finally on the conversion thre is only one bag to grind and the bracket holder can be bonded not so badly ( little hight but will be ok....)
Was wondering which figure "seated" will be better to use for the soldier we can watch thru the open door ???
