Description: The M829E4 is a fifth generation 120mm Advanced Kinetic Energy (AKE) tactical tank round developed for the US Army's M1A2 SEP main battle tanks. This 120mm kinetic energy cartridge has been designed to take heavy armored tanks protected with advanced, explosive reactive armor at extended ranges as well as in Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT), mountain, and nontraditional battlefields. The new round will make possible to engage a target with fewer rounds. In July 2011, the US Army awarded a $77 million three-year contract to ATK for the development and qualification of the M829E4 round. Full rate production is planned for 2014.
