accuraised fuel tank (2).
The fuel tank in the Academy M113A1/A2 kits is significantly longer that it should be. Tamiya has included an integral fuel tank in all of its M113 variants. The integral fuel tank was replaced by a strapped in version to get over fuel tank leakage problems. So, if you are building all but the earliest M113s you need an accurate fuel tank. 2 per packet.
The dimensions for this fuel tank is based on Australian M113A1 fuel tanks.
