Al-Talha is an armoured personnel carrier (APC) designed and manufactured in Pakistan by APC Factory of Heavy Industries Taxila (HIT). The vehicle is based on the M113-A2-Mk.1 APC. The Pakistan Army plans to deploy 2,000 Al-Talha APC by year 2010.

History

The decision to develop the vehicle made after U.S. sanctions imposed on Pakistan made it impossible for HIT to continue manufacturing the M113. The Al-Talha APC design is based on the M113, one notable difference being the positions of the engine and driver station. [2]


The Al-Talha is being marketed for export and was displayed at the IDEAS 2002 defence exhibition, Karachi, in 2002.[3] In November 2004 an Iraqi delegation ordered 44 Talha APCs.
