The M1A1 Abrams main battle tank is the principal combat tank of the United States Army (and USMC). The M1 Abrams was designed by the General Dynamics Corporation and first entered US Army service around 1980. An improved version of the M1, the M1A1 was introduced around 1985. The M1A1 has a 120mm smoothbore gun developed by Rheinmetall GmbH of Germany, improved armor and an NBC protection system.

M1A1 with Mine Plough "Desert Storm" + 1st Infantry
Division Big Red One Figure Set

Features: - Bonus U.S. 1st Infantry Division Big Red One 4-Figure Set The American-designed and produced M1A1 Abrams tank is a most impressive main battle tank (MBT). The original M1 MBT entered service in 1980, but the improved M1A1 that appeared in 1985 offered a much better performance thanks to the inclusion of an M256 smoothbore 120mm main gun. Powered by a novel gas turbine engine, the M1 Abrams has proved a huge success, despite its gas-guzzling personality. The 61.3-ton tank has fought very effectively in such conflicts as the 1991 Gulf War, Kosovo in the 1990s, 2003 Iraq War, and even latterly in Afghanistan in the hands of the US Marine Corps. Some tanks are fitted with a front-mounted mine plough that's designed to push mines out of the way as the tank advances. This impressive type of M1A1 tank with mine plough is featured in Cyber-Hobby's newest Orange Box release. The 1/35 scale tank is accompanied by a set of four plastic soldiers from the 1st Infantry Division "The Big Red One". These figures reflecting modern-day uniforms and weapons are in action poses, and interestingly, one of them is even digging up a mine. This means he'd fit in perfectly with a diorama showing the tank and its attached mine plough in action! Soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division have appeared in a number of modern conflicts such as the Gulf War, the Balkans and Iraq, so this vehicle and figure combination offers a host of possibilities straight from the box. And as is to be expected from Orange Box, this modern US Army set offers modelers unbeatable value for money.

Abrams M1A1 Tank Model
The M1 was a good tank, but the M1A1 improved on it with survivability features like NBC protection and blowout panels for ammo lockers. It also added the heavy-hitting power of the Rheinmetall 120mm smoothbore gun. These guns, loaded with depleted-uranium shells, proved extraordinarily lethal to the tanks of the Iraqi Army. Now you can build America's toughest tank in a 'snap'! Snaptite kits are perfect for introducing new modelers to the hobby and history. This kit features glue less, snap-together construction, pre-painted polystyrene parts and illustrated instructions.

During the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, the U.S. deployed its latest M1A2 Abrams main battle tanks and these continued to be used in Iraq during the subsequent occupation period. Due to the threats posed by RPGs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the urban environments, the tanks were upgraded with more protection in the form of Tank Urban Survival Kits (TUSK I) in 2004. The upgrade included features such as reactive armor on the hull sides, hull underside armor to protect against land mines, an M2 machine gun mounted above the main gun barrel, infrared cameras for the crew, and an external telephone for communication with accompanying infantry. A further development called TUSK II added features such as tile-shaped reactive armor to the turret and hull sides, armored shield for the commander, and a rear-view camera. The TUSK kits could be installed in field depots in about 12 hours and different tanks had different features equipped. TUSK kits could only be installed in theatre due to the reactive armor. The Tamiya 1/35 scale model uses new data gathered to ensure it is the best M1A1 kit in the model world.

M1A2 Abrams 120mm Gun Tank
In 1984, the M1A1 was developed with a 120mm smooth bore cannon, and a further variant the M1A1HA was later developed featuring depleted uranium armor. This then led to the M1A2, which was fitted with Intervehicular Information System (IVIS), Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) turret and new style vision block. The M1A1HA and the M1A2 both played significant roles in Operation Iraqi Freedom, being deployed by land forces as well as the Marine Corps as they moved toward Baghdad.
Includes: Abrams tank, 1 commander figure and 1 loader torso figure, and lots of accessories. Decals for 4 desert vehicles and one NATO vehicle are also included in the kit.

USMC M1A1 Abrams (Heavy Armor) with Figure Set
Since its introduction in 1980, the Abrams has made an enviable name for itself, and combat in places like Kuwait and Iraq have proved beyond a doubt that it is a highly successful design. Weighing nearly 68 tons, the tank is powered by a gas turbine engine. It serves within the army ranks of Australia, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and, of course, the USA. In the USA it is used by both the US Army and the US Marine Corps (USMC). Indeed, it is a version used by the USMC that is depicted in this Orange Box kit. The actual variant is an M1A1HA (Heavy Armor), which is a version distinguished by the addition of first-generation depleted uranium armor mesh within its composite armor package. The USMC currently operates 403 M1A1 Abrams tanks, and this kit would be ideal for depicting a scene involving Marines from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF).

M1A2 SEP V2 (System Enhanced Program) Vehicle
The latest and most advanced version of the Abrams is the M1A2 SEP V2, where ‘SEP' stands for System Enhanced Program and ‘V2' denotes Version 2. It has integrated command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities, which incorporate FBCB2 to provide very effective real-time command and control. The sights use the latest second-generation FLIR thermal-imaging system, while an upgraded Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) provides a hunter-killer capacity that allows the M1A2 SEP V2 to engage one target while simultaneously tracking another. Lethality improvements include a Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) II that can be fired from inside the MBT using a joystick and screen, thus reducing the crew's exposure to snipers. Also added is a phone on the back of the tank so soldiers can talk to the crew. The M1A2 SEP V2 is clearly the predator at the apex of the US Army's food chain!.
