The M10 Booker formerly known as the Mobile Protective Firepower (MPF) is a new tracked combat vehicle of the U.S. Army which was designed and developed by the American company GDLS (General Dynamics Land Systems) to enhance the combat capabilities of the U.S. Army Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT). The IBCT is one of the main types of brigade-sized units, designed to be highly mobile and flexible, and it's the basic deployable unit of maneuver in the U.S. Army.

The AbramsX, an innovative Main Battle Tank (MBT) technology demonstrator, was first showcased by General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) at the Association of United States Army (AUSA) defense exhibition in September 2022, held in Washington DC. This concept marks the dawn of the next generation of Main Battle Tanks for the U.S. Army. It is not merely an extension of the traditional Abrams tank lineage, but rather a fresh concept, designed to tackle emerging threats on the contemporary battlefield.
