Predicted and scheduled events[edit]

  • The United States of America's armed forces are presumed to phase out the entire M1 Abrams fleet from service. By this time, the M1 Abrams will have seen 71 years of service with the U.S. Army and USMC. It will be presumably replaced by Main battle tanks or weapons systems resulting from either the cancelled GCV (Ground combat vehicle) program, or cancelled FCS (Future combat systems) program.
