Brett Waite, an Anniston Army Depot mechanic, installs defensive armor onto the turret of an Assault Breacher Vehicle. The turret is fabricated by the depot and assembled atop an overhauled M1 Abrams chassis to create an ABV for the United States Marine Corps. The manufacturing of ABVs shows the depot's capability to build and overhaul vehicles for the joint military. The first ABV completed under full-rate production here was delivered to the USMC on July 7.
