Thanks for the review!

One small but important point : those should have Diehl tracks right? I feel Legend should include resin sprockets for those, for modelers who are going to use flexible vinyl AFV Club tracks...

Cheers,

Christophe

My pleasure doing the review.

Yes, Diehl tracks were used on the Canadian M113s from the mid-1970s onward.

However, the correct sprocket is provided in the AFV Club individual link M113A1G NATO track and sprocket set as well as in the HKCW M113 Series Track Set. I think the lack of correct sprocket in the AFV Club M113 vinyl track set is more of AFV Club's issue rather than Legend Productions.

Agreed it's a AFV Club mistake, but still Legend including them would make people happy, just sayin'

Indeed...and importantly accurate decals.
