Aye, so there is FCS upgrade for M1A2SEPv2's, Trophy APS integration for single ABCT for brigade level test and evaluation and also it seems they will modernize M1's transmission, probably the same modification is used on M1A2SEPv3 to compensate for a greater weight of vehicle.

No, the IFCEU is already in the SEP V2's but will continue with the maintenance of this LRU.

Are the items marked "PV4" some sort of armour or just weights to simulate its effect on vehicle performance etc?

Weight simulators for the new armor package. In other words some prototypes had the current M1A2SEPv1/v2 armor package installed, it's weight + weight of weight simulator plates = weight of the new armor package.

This looks like new Anti Air Bradley variant with new radars, Stinger missile launcher and some sort of UAV jamming system?

General Wesley presents the context under which the U.S. Army is developing the "Next Generation Combat Vehicle". Among others, Wesley focuses on the M1A2 SEP, and how it's increasing weight and the daily fuel consumption of the Armored Brigade Combat Team needs to be reduced to be deployable to a future theater of war. Also, enabling technologies of the NGCV are discussed, with a focus on APS, weaponry and power generation (fuel cells, electric/hybrid electric).

Complete removal of the Main Gun, found this picture online. Glad they made the “Rail System” to use. It’s a very useful special tool. I used it back when we did our piston removal.

@Assassin 7I have a question. Are US Army M1's, especially newer ones like M1A2SEP, capable to use Deep Water Fording Kit as well? Do you guys use them, or at least have them kept in storage?

Yes, the SEP is capable to use the Fording Kit. It’s really up to the unit to purchase them. They are separate from the BII that comes with the vehicle.

Thanks for answer, this clears up a lot, cause literature is really not talking much about this.

It seems like technically every single variant of M1 can use DWFK kit, even old M1 and M1IP, altough Hunnicutt seems to imply first tests were done on the basic M1A1. Perhaps kit was designed with backwards compitability in mind.
