General Dynamics Awarded $188 Million For Abrams Tank Production

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Land Systems has been awarded $187.5 million for conversion of 44 M1A1 and 40 M1A2 Abrams tanks to the Saudi M1A2 (M1A2S) configuration for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
