The U.S. Army has issued $53 million in contracts to Orbital ATK to produce large-caliber training ammunition, including 120mm and 105mm rounds.

The 120mm training ammunition, used by Abrams tanks, includes the M865 kinetic energy and the M1002 multi-purpose tank training rounds.

The 105mm M724A2 to be produced is used for crew training on the Stryker Mobile Gun System vehicles.

"High-quality training ammunition is essential to the warfighter, who must be prepared to react decisively on today's battlefield," said Dan Olson, vice president and general manager for the Armament Systems Division of Orbital ATK's Defense Systems Group.

Orbital ATK has delivered nearly 5 million rounds of large caliber tactical and training tank ammunition to the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and allied militaries.
