They held a 4 tube grenade discharger. I don't think they were ever on our M113's as we had larger turn signal lights mounted in those locations. There were some former US M113's received for museums that had them installed.

Cheers,
Rich

Thanks guys. I'm building one of the M-113-A2s from the Ontario Regiment R.C.A.C. in Oshawa, Canada. IO's painted in U.N. white and markings and my niece and I rode in it at the museum tank day.
