General Dynamics $40m Tank Training Ammunition Contract


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
General Dynamics
: 18 January, 2007  (Company News)
The U.S. Army Sustainment Command in Rock Island, Ill., has awarded General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, a $39.5 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for M865 Target Practice Cone Stabilized Discarding Sabot-Tracer 120mm cartridges.
The M865 cartridge kinetic energy, target practice round is used in the 120mm, smooth bore M256 cannon of Army and Marine Corps Abrams main battle tanks. The M865 is designed to simulate the service round characteristics at reduced maximum ranges, to allow practice firings on short-range training areas.

Work on this contract will be performed at General Dynamics ordnance and Tactical Systems locations in St. Petersburg; Red Lion, Pa.; and Valleyfield, Quebec; and is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2008.
