AMPHIBIOUS PERSONNEL CARRIER
The APC [Amphibious Personnel Carrier] was first released boxed in U.S. toy stores in 1983. The toy was also sold in 1984 and was discontinued in 1985.
The APC was available from Hasbro Direct via mail-away offers from 1984 until 1990.
Easily Broken/Lost Pieces
The two long seat belts are the most commonly lost pieces. Also, make sure that the steering wheel isn't missing.
While most of it was identical to the original APC, some of the later mail-order version had a dark-green top instead of the tan camouflage top.
This Hasbro Direct version with the dark-green top was repackaged to create the convention exclusive CUDA.
In Europe in the early 1980s, the APC was recolored in dark green and black and released as the Z-Force Armoured Troop Carrier. The interior of the APC was heavily re-tooled.
In Argentina, the APC was sold as the Transporte Tactico Anfibio.
In Brazil, the APC was sold as the Transporte Tãtico Anfíbio.
