AN/PRC-113 Manpack Radio
The AN/PRC-113 radio set is a tactical, short range, manpack, ground-to-air/air-to-ground radio used primarily by Forward Air Control (FAC) teams or other tactical ground to ground or ground to air communications. It was developed as part of the Pacer Speak family of tri-service interoperable radios for FAC teams.
AN/PRC-113 Manpack Radio Set
The multi-band UHF/VHF AM AN/PRC-113 is short range (5 to 15 miles) and has a jam-resistant electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) transceiver. While limited to Line of Sight, low power, vulnerable to atmospheric conditions, and of limited bandwidth the AN/PRC-113 was still a valuable tactical radio for its assigned mission.
The AN/PRC-113(V) model is baseband COMSEC compatible. The AN/PRC-113(V)3 has internal ECCM while AN/PRC-113(V)1 does not have the integated ECCM capability.
