General Dynamics
: 11 February, 2008  (Company News)
The U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command has awarded General Dynamics Land Systems a multi-year contract to upgrade 435 M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks.
The vehicles will be converted to the M1A2 Systems Enhancement Package (SEP) Version Two (V2) configuration. The first increment of the multi-year contract is valued at $39 million and will fund the upgrade of 20 M1A1 Abrams tanks.

This multi-year procurement contract will complete the modernization of all remaining M1A1 Tanks which have been in the Army's inventory for more than 20 years.

The most technologically advanced digital tank, the M1A2 SEP V2 includes improved displays, sights, auxiliary power and a tank-infantry phone. It also can accommodate future technology improvements to ensure compatibility with the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems.

This award is in addition to $12.4 million awarded in January to fund parts for the upgrades. Work will be performed in Anniston, Ala.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Sterling Heights, Mich.; Lima, Ohio; and Scranton, Penn. The upgrade program is expected to be completed in June 2013.
