13X isn't actually an MOS (Military Occupation Speciality). Instead, it's an enlistment option. The "X" means that the specific job is not known at the time of enlistment.

Individuals who enlist under the 13X Infantry option attend Field Artillery OSUT (One Station Unit Training), which combines Army Basic Training and Field Artillery AIT (Advanced Individual Training), all in one course. During that training, recruits are allowed to list their specific Artillery job preferences, but ultimate assignments are determined by the "needs of the Army." Upon graduation from OSUT, recruits are assigned to one of the following Field Artillery MOS's:

13B

Cannon Crewmember

13C

Tactical Automated Fire Control Systems

13D

Field Artillery Automated Tactical Data Systems Specialist

13E

Cannon Fire Direction Specialist

13F

Fire Support Specialist

13M

Multiple Launch Rocket System Crewmember

13P

Multiple Launch Rocket System Automated Tactical Data Systems Specialist

13R
