The Abrams M1A2, Versatile Death

As the centerpiece of the military’s armored strike forces is the M1A2 battle tank. Its one mission is to engage and destroy any opposing armored vehicle on the modern battlefield. The M1A2 is one of the best protected main tanks in use today, due to the use of steel encased depleted uranium armor. It is designed to absorb the energy of an impact while preventing penetration into the interior of the tank. The main weapon on the M1A2 is a 120-mm type M-256 smoothbore cannon which is able to fire two types of ammunition: kinetic energy penetrator rounds and high-explosive rounds.

Mrs. Benavides worked with the school staff in order to plan an assembly at the kids’ elementary school at which their dad would surprise them in front of the entire school. The plan went off without a hitch, and the kids were reunited with their father for the first time in a year. Read more

Custom Solutions for Custom Problems

More often than not, customers already have existing equipment in place when they realize they have a need for more. Frequently, the existing structures are custom built, making it difficult to incorporate additional equipment and meet the customer’s needs. That’s not a problem for American Warehouse Systems, because we love a challenge and can find a solution for every problem. We recently finished installing mezzanine systems in two separate hangers on a military base. The mezzanines were being installed into older hangers with many obstructions. Because of this, only custom designed mezzanines would work for each hanger. An American Warehouse Systems mezzanine specialist completed a detailed site survey, where every column height was measured for the unique install locations. One hanger required a U-shaped mezzanine ... Read more
