Fightability: A Dramatic Weapons System
The mission of the Abrams tank is to close with and destroy
enemy forces on the integrated battlefield using mobility, firepower and shock
effect. The 120mm main gun combined with the powerful 1500 hp turbine engine
and special armor make the Abrams particularly suitable for attacking or
defending against large concentrations of heavy armor forces on a highly lethal
battlefield. The M1A2 development program, built on the M1A1, provides an
Abrams tank with the necessary improvements in lethality, survivability, and
fightability required to defeat the threat of the mid '90s.
Today, fightability is the culmination of the weapon
system's ability to help the soldier make the most effective, best informed
decision...in the least amount of time. The performance of the M1 series tank
has defined that term.
General Dynamics, under the leadership of the U.S. Army, has
worked to implement an intense system engineering, design and integration
program to improve the fightability of the Main Battle Tank.
The M1A2's suite of advanced displays, controls and
survivability enhancements as well as addition of data and power management
systems...elevate fightability of the Main Battle Tank to new levels.
The most innovative feature of the M1A2 system is the core
vetronics system, which is to the close combat weapon system what avionics is
to the jet fighter. Instead of separate, hard wiring of components, all
controls are linked through two electronic buses; one controlling power, the
The supportability, lethality and fightability of the M1A2
add up to a combat system that is second to none...a Main Battle Tank ready
today...the standard for weapon systems of the future...the M1A2: fightability
