Army Continues Testing of M1A2 Abrams at Yuma Proving Ground

The U.S. Army continues to assess the M1A2 Abrams battle tank’s systems engineering plan across 200 miles of rugged road within Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona, DVIDShub.net reported Thursday.

The SEPv3 configuration includes updates on the tank’s armor, fire control electronics, engine, drivetrain and tracks. The service branch is also testing the tank's ability to support hubcaps and road arms produced through 3D printing.

Greg Duda, test lead for the Abrams tank, said the team has been conducting tests for the past two and a half years.
