Orbital ATK Developing Advanced Multi-Purpose 120mm Tank Round

First Images Of Warhead And All Up Round Unveiled

Orbital ATK is in the second phase of development for the US Army’s Advanced Multi-Purpose 120mm AMP XM1147 round. This is a second technology insertion of an advanced ammunition type for the ABRAMS tank which provides greater capabilities and battle carry flexibility.

AMP will technologically replace four current, inventory rounds without sacrificing capability against target sets including bunker defeat, light armour, rubbling and enemy troops out to 500 metres. AMP also adds new capabilities to breach reinforced walls, defeat of anti-tank guided missile teams and airburst capability out to 2,000 metres.
