32 M113 were equipped with radar M/74 type ZB 298 from Marconi in 1974. The radar is working in the 3 cm band. Capable of detecting personnel at a 5 km range and vehicles at a 10 km range. The system was removed from the APCs in the mid 1980s and installed on the Unimog 416. The radar must be considered out-dated, and is not in service anymore.
The radar system was also used by the British Army mounted in the FV 432 series APC, and by the Dutch Army mounted in the DAF YP-408 APC.
