Not that good at recon due to average mobility and optics, it's autocannon is the same as similarly priced units. You may prefer the smaller Kurz over this one.
M114 was designed to complement the M113 in command and reconnaissance role. However unlike the M113 which became one of the most successful armoured vehicles, it quickly proved unsuited to use in the Vietnam war, and was replaced in the reconnaissance role by the M551 Sheridan light tank. During combat operations in Vietnam, the M114 armored reconnaissance vehicle proved to be mechanically unreliable, underpowered, had extreme difficulty conducting cross country operations, and its lack of resistance to land mines was fatal; a mine that would nearly destroy a standard M113 ACAV would literally blast an M114 reconnaissance vehicle in half.
The M114A2 (aka M114A1E1) had a hydraulically powered cupola and mounted the 20mm cannon M139 which was Hispano-Suiza HS.820 20 mm gun in American Service. The observer in the rear had an M60 7.62mm machine gun mounted on a pedestal. There was stowage on the rear door for three M72A1 "LAW" anti-tank rockets.
