General Dynamics Awarded MBT Contract

General Dynamics Land Systems was recently awarded a $14 million contract with the US Army for tank production materials. General Dynamics will purchase long-lead materials for the 140 M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks for purposes in Iraq.

They have been commissioned to upgrade the battle tanks to include infrared thermal sight, tank urban survivability kit improvements and improvements to the driver’s vision enhancer.

The army has also asked General Dynamics to improve the existing jet filter cleaning systems. The last component of the project will be to install the engines developed through the Army’s Total Integrated Engine Revitalization program. This tank is the most important main battle tank of the US Army and Marine Corps.
