General Dynamics has been awarded a competitive award worth up to $280 million to procure Trophy Ready Kits as an Active Protection System (APS) for Abrams main battle tanks.

Trophy rapidly detects, classifies and engages threats such as recoilless rifles, antitank guided missiles, rockets, tank rounds and rocket-propelled grenades. The detection of threats, including their launch location, allows Abrams tank crews to rapidly handle targets.

The kits will be added to M1A2 SEPv2 and M1A2 SEPv3 Abrams tanks as needed, continuing their fielding across the Army.

Work on the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract is expected to extend into mid-2027.
