General Dynamics
: 11 August, 2008  (Company News)
The U.S. Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command awarded General Dynamics Land Systems $614 million on August 1 to upgrade 235 M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks to the M1A2 Systems Enhancement Package (SEP) Version Two (V2) configuration.
The most technologically advanced digital tank, the M1A2 SEP V2 includes
improved color displays, day and night thermal sights, auxiliary power and a
tank-infantry phone. It can also accommodate future technology improvements
for compatibility with the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems.


The order was made under a multi-year contract awarded in February 2008
which authorized the modernization of 435 M1A1 Tanks that have been in the
Army's inventory for more than 20 years. An additional 180 Tanks remain to
be upgraded through the program, which will complete the conversion of all
tanks in the Army's active component to the M1A2 SEP V2 configuration.
