ATK Receives $37 Million in Orders for Tank Training Ammunition
Order Is Part of $228 Million Four-Year Contract

ATK Has Delivered Over 3.8 Million Rounds of tank Training Ammunition

Alliant Techsystems has received orders worth $37 million from the U.S. Army Sustainment Command, Rock Island, Ill. to continue production of 120mm training Ammunition used by the Army's M1A1/A2 Abrams main battle tank and to continue to provide logistics support for the ammunition.

This is the fourth annual procurement under a four-year contract with a total value of $228 million. Deliveries are slated to begin in February 2008. ATK has produced 120mm tank training Ammunition for over 27 years. It has delivered over 3.8 million rounds to the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps, as well as NATO Allies.

'A trained and ready military is essential to the defense of our nation,' said Dave Wise, Vice President ATK Advanced Weapons. 'ATK's tank training rounds help ensure that our Army and Marine tank crews are prepared to fight and win on the battlefield.'
