US: DOD to buy Trophy APS system to defend M1 tanks.

(Washington)  The Department of Defence 2019 Budget Proposal has secured funding to furnish 261 M1 tanks, to be fitted with the proven Israeli-made Trophy Active Protection Systems (APS) to guard against anti-tank missiles.

In light of the proliferation of anti tank weapons across the world (As seen in Syria)  The US Army after many years of looking at a range of domestically produced and allied international APS solutions has finally decided to go down the Trophy route.
