The AbramsX is a Tier 10 special premium Main Battle Tank under Sophie Wölfli's dealership.

History[ | ]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Experimental)
Developed: 2022
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1

The AbramsX is a technology demonstrator and a private venture by General Dynamics Land Systems. The main idea behind this demonstrator is maintaining or improving the current Abrams protection levels while reducing the vehicle's weight.

The AbramsX MBT therefore offers reduced weight. Instead of a manned turret, the vehicle is fitted with an unmanned combat module and the entire crew (reduced to three men) sits in the front in an armored capsule. This of course means its gun is automatically loaded from a bustle-mounted ammo rack. While the protection values of the vehicle are unknown, they are intended to be similar to the current generation Abrams. Additionally the vehicle is fitted with a Trophy hard-kill APS and can be fitted with various sensor upgrades as well as UAV/loitering ammunition launchers, AI control modules and more.

The tank is powered by a hybrid variant of the Cummins ACE diesel engine paired with a SAPA ACT transmission. This way the vehicle can (for a short while) switch to a fully electric drive, which can be an advantage as the electric engines are very quiet and accelerate extremely well. The turret is armed with a lightweight 120mm XM360 gun, similar in performance to the M256. It is, however, considerably lighter.

Additionally, the tank is armed with a remote-controlled Kongsberg Protector RS6 weapons station armed with 30mm M230LF autocannon (called XM914 in American service). The autocannon fires new universal anti-infantry XM1211 HEP air-burst ammunition (High Explosive Proximity – not to be confused with High Explosive Plastic, which is an American term for HESH). Additionally, this weapons station can be fitted with a Javelin launcher.

The turret is fitted with advanced optics, including two Safran PASEO panoramic camera sets (one for the gunner, one for the commander), both of which include a full HD camera, a thermal imager, a laser rangefinder, and an automatic tracking system.

The demonstrator was unveiled in the October of 2022 during the AUSA expo in Washington DC as a vision of what a future generation Abrams could look like. There are currently no plans to adopt or mass-produce this vehicle but it does offer a glimpse into what could come in the 2030s after the SEP v4 Abrams.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable.
