New M1 series tank?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I talked to a guy from Rock Island Arsenal today and he said they were coming out with a new version of the M1 called the "1A2 SEP V2". Anybody heard of it? Hope to talk to him again and find out more.

Only things I am aware of would be the TUSK upgrade and the FCS Spin Out kit...

Hi Folks!

I too have read an article noting the latest version of the M1 was called the M1A2 SEP Version 2. No idea which upgrades that covers yet.

Sgt, Scouts Out!

Only thing I can find is that "Version 2" includes a "Continous Electronics Enhancement Package," whatever that is...

Pulled from Defense Industry Daily:

"The M1A2 SEP is builds on the digitized M1A2 platform with an improved armor package of third generation steel-encased depleted uranium armor, a new command and control system, second-generation FLIR thermal sights that include a Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) for "hunter-killer" operation, the Under Armor Auxiliary Power Unit (UAAPU) and a Thermal Management System (TMS - i.e. air conditioning for crew & electronics). The M1A2 SEP also features enhanced electronics like color maps and displays, improved networked communications, high-density computer memory and increased microprocessing speed, a user friendly Soldier Machine Interface (SMI) and an open operating system that will allow for future growth.
