There is two large bulletproof at the front of the vehicle, and one single door. On each side of the hull there is three small bullet proof windows with firing port in the lower part.

The LM13 is motorized with a Cummins 6 cylinder turbo Diesel engine developing 400 hp coupled to a fully automatic transmission with 6 speed. The vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 120 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 540 km.
