ABV Assault Breacher Vehicle engineer armoured vehicle tank
Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV) is a tracked armored engineer vehicle
specifically designed for conducting in-stride breaching of minefields
and complex obstacles. The ABV is built on the same chassis as the General
Dynamics-built M1A1 Abrams main battle tank. The Assault Breacher Vehicle
(ABV) is a single platform that will provide deliberate and in-stride
breaching capability to the assault force of the Marine Air Ground Task
Force. The ABV operates as part of the combined arms task force and
is assigned to and employed by Combat Engineers. The ABV incorporates
a number of subsystems, including a full width mine plow, dual line
charges, lane marking system, remote control system, and protective
weapon system. The integration of the Breaching Package onto the ABV,
which uses the M1 tank chassis, shall require minimal modification to
the chassis. The development and design of the ABV were carried out
in the US Army Anniston Depot in Alabama who has extensive experience
in the overhaul and modernisation of armoured fighting vehicles and
other equipment. The US Marine Corps has ordered a total of 45 systems
and by mid 2009 a total of 31 had been delivered.
