I've been told that it does but I am not so sure since I don't see a MFSC card.

I don't think the WS-X4013 will do any layer three routing. The WS-X4013+
had basic layer three capabilities and was based on IOS.

No.
The SupII (WS-X4013) is layer two only
SupII+ or or SupIII or SupIV or SupV will all do layer 3 switching
You will never see an MSFC, that is a Cat6500 item

As already been posted, if you want L3 capabilities you will need a
WS-X4232-L3 module which is the same concept as a RSM in a C5K.

Or a supervisor that is capable of layer 3 switching. IIRC a sup II+, III,
or later. As I recall, the WS-X4232-L3 is a line card that has two external
and two internal gigabit ports (all of which can be vlan'd). The internal
ones connect directly to the fabric. There are also 32 10/100 ports. This
does not replace the supervisor. You can route between its vlans. This
module, although it has certain sup requirements, does not involve the sup
with routing. Later sup engines have this capability natively. Either way
you go, it is not cheap. Also, I have had performance issues personally
with intervlan routing of IPX so I wouldn't recommend that. My 2 cents.

You are correct in the way the L3 engine works in terms of external
and internal ports. However i do not agree that if you have a
organisation and support team that are uses to CatOS to change to IOS
based SP engine such as the II+, III and IV. Whilst i agree that is
the way fwd if you are sticking with the 4k then yes migrate. Also if
you are not too worried about over-subscription with 2 gig L3 uplink
to matrix (Backplane) then there is no issues.
