The Israelis captured a number of M113 armoured personnel carriers from the Jordanians in 1967, and after some modifications to suit their needs internally and externially, they eventually went about purchasing more from the US. The M113 underwent a series of standardised modifications to become the Israeli M113 ‘Zelda’ APC.

Mine racks were added to each side of the M113 as well as a rail for mounting knapsacks, camouflage nets, stretchers and tactical callsigns. Often the splash board on the front of the hull was removed due to the lack of water crossings that the IDF were required to conduct.
