BL35355K – M1 ABRAMS CROWS RWS LP – LOW PROFILE

The M153A1E1 CROWS-LP is an ECP integration onto the M1A2 SEPv2. The system addresses visibility concerns associated with the existing M153 CROWS II by relocating the sights and laser range finder to the side of the weapon and ammunition box rather than under the weapon, reducing the system height by 10 inches.

BL35358K – STRYKER BLUE FORCE 1 + 2 TRACKERS – AFV CLUB

Blue force tracking is a United States military term for a GPS-enabled capability that provides military commanders and forces with location information about friendly (and despite its name, also hostile) military forces. In NATO military symbology, blue typically denotes friendly forces. The capability provides a common picture of the location of friendly forces and therefore is referred to as the blue force tracker. When all capitalized, the term refers to a specific defense contractors' system, but the capability is found in many military and civilians mobile apps.
