Operated in 1960 along with several variants being produced, the Comet is an armoured personnel carrier which is equipped with a machine gun, suited for light anti-personnel combat along with a TOW launcher to fight against light armoured vehicles when deployed on the field, despite being one of many Cold War vehicles to still operate in the United States' Armed Forces after 1991.

Comets are built to carry around 5 personnel to the battlefield in and out of areas for combat and evacuation protocols when required, when required at some point in a battle any operator using of the Comet can switch from standard weapons to pack a M61 Vulcan for better effectiveness, also switching from being restricted to fighting ground threats to multi-role engagements such as dealing with enemy aircraft.

Clones & Copies

Various reports from USTF forces show that various APC based vehicles have been reported to have copied off the M113 Comet, all-thou some of them were built by Evans Military Tank and Vehicles Inc. after it secured rights and licensing with some of its facilities across the world building the Comet. Some examples of licensed vehicles based on the Comet was the Landsweeper Construction Vehicle that are being built today in Kazakhstan for construction and also attending to battlefield based situations, also employing its armoured bodywork allowing it to operate under harsh conditions.

Other vehicles were built by terrorist factions through captured facilities, most of these copies of the Comet were known to be the D-53BF Diablo, utilizing a set of toxin sprayers and a 90mm cannon to deal with units attacking it but however EMTV Inc. stated that its not one of their products despite being built outside of the United States. Specialists have spoken out to military forces relating to the D-38AP Gladiator, who have said that they have received reports and complaints about the vehicle was being used by enemy forces of the USA, all-thou the Gladiator was built by the company's Eurasian division it was intended to be sold for countries that cannot afford any light tanks or AFVs for light anti-vehicle purposes, however despite its purpose it has been found being used by factions such as the Global Liberation Army but however due to demand across Eurasia its development went into full-force until 2018, where it was stopped due to reports of the Comet being cloned and used by the GLA.
