The M1 Abrams Tank is the backbone of the armored forces. With the ability to engage enemies anytime, anywhere, it takes a highly detailed and skilled individual to ensure these vehicles keep pushing forward.
As the M1 Abrams Tank System Maintainer in the Army National Guard, you will be responsible for supervising and performing maintenance on these tanks. Your duties will include: diagnosing and troubleshooting malfunctions; performing organizational maintenance and on-board direct support tasks on the suspension systems, steering systems, hydraulic systems, auxiliary power units, fire extinguisher/suppression systems, and gas particulate systems; and performing organizational maintenance on vehicular mounted armament, gun turret drive system, and fire control system.
Some of the Skills You’ll Learn
Electronic and mechanical principles and concepts
Use of electronic, electrical, and mechanical test equipment
Use of schematics, drawings, and wiring diagrams
Strong attention to detail
Interest in working with diesel and turbine engines
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career as an electronics mechanic, an avionics technician, or a missile facilities repairer with civilian firms that design, build, and test weapons for the military.
Earn While You Learn
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
Job training for an M1 Abrams Tank Systems Maintainer requires 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you’ll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 24 weeks of Advanced Individual Training. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
Requires military enlistment. Programs and benefits are subject to change. Ask your Army National Guard recruiter for the most up-to-date information. Actual MOS assignment may depend on MOS availability.
