American Warehouse Systems has been awarded the Most Valuable Partner (MVP) award by the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA).  MHEDA is the only trade association dedicated solely to improving the proficiency of the material handling equipment distributor.  American Warehouse Systems has been a member in good standing since 2003 and when the opportunity arose to apply for MVP status we were the first in line (literally).

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. The gun is extremely accurate, thanks in part to the advanced digital fire control computer and a gun stabilization platform. These features allow the ... Read more
