Almost as soon as the first production M1 Abrams MBTs began rolling
off the assembly line, did American engineers begin working on an
upgunned version of the Abrams. They succeeded in this endeavour in
1981, after a prototype Abrams, designated M1E1, was successfully fitted
with a 120mm Rheinmetall smoothbore cannon.

Showing promising performance, work on the vehicle continued. At the
same time, an upgraded version of the original Abrams, the IPM1, which
featured improved protection and a larger turret was briefly produced
between 1984 - 1986. The resulting M1A1 Abrams inherited the upgrades
from the IPM1 and combined them with the M256 120mm smoothbore cannon, a
licence-built version of the German original.

The M1A1 was adopted for service in 1984, and was produced alongside
the IPM1 for a short while since 1985 until the older modification was
phased out of production.

The M1A1 saw its first use during the U.S. deployment in the Gulf War
in 1991. Faced against arguably inferior Soviet-era tanks, the M1A1 had
successfully proven its worth in tank-on-tank engagements, but exposed
new problems concerning its performance and vulnerability in urban
environments. This led to further upgrades for the vehicle being
developed later on.

Production of the M1A1 seized in 1992, with over 5,800 units being
produced, including Egyptian and Australian export models. The original
M1A1 chassis still serves today, albeit as upgraded variants which have
undergone several modernization efforts.

Sorry, I don't have the best luck with dowloads. While I do have tutorials on my youtube channel (an older, simpler M1), this particular build will probably not get one given the time-consuming complexity.
