General Dynamics Awarded $380 Million for Abrams Main Battle Tank Work
November 28, 2006

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. - General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a $380 million contract to upgrade Abrams Tanks with the M1A2 System Enhancement Package (SEP).

The M1A2 SEP fully digitized platform is the most technologically advanced Abrams tank. It features the most sophisticated command and control system, second-generation thermal sights and improved armor. This contract is part of an overall M1A2 tank upgrade program that integrates new information technologies to improve soldier warfighting capability with enhanced command and control features, like color Maps and displays, high-density computer memory, increased microprocessing speed and networked communications.

Work will be performed by existing General Dynamics employees in Anniston, Ala.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Lima, Ohio; Sterling Heights, Mich.; and Scranton, Pa. Vehicle upgrades will begin in November, with deliveries scheduled for May 2008 through November 2009.
