I do believe the Mythbuster crew used the M113 and the M551 "deathstalker" to pull apart 2 phone books inertleafed together.

Interesting to see the M113 was infact an ex Australian FSV... thats Fire Support Vehicle. Its a M113 modified with a turret of a Saladin armourd car. Some saw service in SVN. The latter model had the Scorpion turret fitted. Can't think of their official military name off the top of my head.
