DID Improves its TIGER CoverageMar 31, 2006 02:10 UTC by Defense Industry Daily staff
A March 2006 global tank market report (2006-2016) by Forceast International notes the significant share of global spending covered by upgrades and maintenance agreements for advanced western tanks. The M1 Abrams receives particular mention in that respect, which is more or less inevitable given its comparative numbers.
Thanks to some assistance from Honeywell and the good people at Weber Shandwick, DID has upgraded its January core article covering US Army’s $1.4 billion TIGER (Total InteGrated Engine Revitalization) program for the AGT-1500 turbine. What distinguishes Honeywell’s performance-based approach under TIGER from previous contracts, and how does the program fit in with overall US Army plans for the M1 Abrams out to 2027? Read the improved DID article and see.
