General Dynamics unveils AbramsX tank

General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) has unveiled its next-generation main battle tank (MBT) the AbramsX ahead of its showcase at the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington D.C. from 10-12 October.

GDLS said that the AbramsX technology demonstrator features reduced weight for improved mobility and transportability, delivering the same tactical range as the M1A2 Abrams with 50% less fuel consumption.

The AbramsX’s hybrid power pack supports the U.S. Army’s climate and electrification strategies, enhances silent watch capability and even allows for some silent mobility.

With a reduced crew size and AI-enabled lethality, survivability, mobility, manned/unmanned teaming (MUM-T) and autonomous capabilities, AbramsX can be a key node in lethal battlefield networks and serve as a bridge from Abrams SEPv3 and SEPv4 to a future tank.
