The M1A1 Abrams’ increased operational tempo demands expansion of this proven stalwart’s capabilities. A continued commitment to heavy armor means managing and updating the M1A1 fleet for the Military. The M1A1, battle-tested and battle-victorious, continues to meet the new and emerging threats associated with the next generation of warfare. The Abrams has a legacy of unparalleled performance. Moving forward, that legacy will be preserved by reducing operational and support costs, extending service life to 2030 and bolstering the M1A1’s capabilities in urban operations. Resetting returning vehicles is also key to the fleet's health, readiness and effectiveness.
