Honeywell has won a $16.5 million contract to supply J7 Digital Electronic Control Units for Abrams family of vehicles belonging to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
The M1 Abrams is designed for modern armored ground warfare. It has a 1500 hp AGT1500 multifuel turbine engine, sophisticated Chobham composite armor, a computer fire control system and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment along with NBC protection for crew safety.
While the initial models of the M1 were armed with a licensed-produced 105 mm Royal Ordnance L7 gun, later variants feature a licensed Rheinmetall 120 mm L/44 for increased firepower. Weighing nearly 68 short tons (almost 62 metric tons), it is one of the heaviest main battle tanks in service.
Work is estimated to be completed by June 28, 2024.

Saudi Arabia will not be able to acquire the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense systems as the United States (US) senate has blocked $8 Billion arms sales to Riyadh and its allies, owing to their interference in the Yemen conflict. The Republican-led Senate joined the Democrats in a symbolic rebuke to President Donald Trump who had claimed earlier this year that "emergency" circumstances require Washington to provide Riyadh with more precision-guided bombs because of Iranian threats
