Looking for US M113A3 Ambulance Interiors

I'm trying to find interior images of a US M113A3 ambulance, or verification that images I've found on the net of Belgian, German, and Polish ambulances that have the framework for inserting and securing litters accurately resemble US ambulances. I've seen one photo of a US 'A3 dark interior with a chain visible hanging from the ceiling, and a model by Gino Quintiliani resembling this image, but they don't provide enough detail or confirm what version would be used in Iraq in 2003-2004. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The ambulance version is basically a kit consisting of chains that attach to the interior of the roof and floor to hold litters. Any M113A2 or A3 can be turned into an ambulance with the kit.

My model represents one from the late '90s in Korea. It is the same type that was used in Iraq in '03-'04. As Rob states, any A2 or A3 can be turned into an ambulance using the ambulace conversion set of bars and chains.

Thanks Rob and Gino, that puts me on the right track. Your other postings here and on Armorama on the M113 series have been most helpful as well.

If you can wait a couple of days, I can send you some interior pictures that might assist you. Drop me an e-mail and we can get things worked out...

Great images. I had found the TM on this site for the M113 but hadn't come across this. This will be easier to follow than a DML instruction sheet!
