Allison wins U.S. Army engineering contract

10 February 2021

The contract will support the improvement of the Army’s Abrams Main Battle Tank fleet.

Through a $3.6 million contract the U.S. Army has selected Allison Transmission to undertake an engineering program that builds on previous analysis and evaluates the X1100-3B1 transmission and final drive changes necessary to expand the Abrams’ performance in speed, cruising range and durability.

The Abrams tank, introduced in the early 1980s, has been the subject of continuous capability improvements throughout its service life. This effort represents a deliberate plan by U.S. Army program managers and engineers to maintain the performance necessary to succeed in combat, Allison said.

“Our support for the Army’s armoured formations spans over five decades,” said Dana Pittard, vice president for Defense Programs at Allison Transmission. “This contract demonstrates that Allison’s long-term strategic relationship with the Army is built on trust, partnership and a mutual commitment to the Abrams fleet.

“Enhancements and upgrades to this battle-tested design will support the Army’s needs for decades to come.”
