 ALLIANT TECHSYSTEMS RECEIVES TANK AMMUNITION ORDER FOR $85 MILLION
 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/-- Alliant Techsystems (NYSE: ATK) today announced it has received an order worth $84.9 million for tank ammunition from the U.S. Army Armament Munitions and Chemical Command (AMCCOM). This order completes the option in the contract for $202 million that Alliant Techsystems received from AMCCOM in October 1991 and will bring the total number of rounds to be delivered on this contract to 319,200.
 With more than one million combat and training rounds delivered since 1985, Alliant Techsystems is the largest producer of U.S. 120mm tank ammunition. The company has received the competitive large-share award for production in four out of the last five years.
 The 120mm ammunition is fired from the M1A1/A2 Abrams tank, the Army's main battle tank, and soon to become the main battle tank in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The M1A1 Abrams tank and 120mm ammunition played a key role in the ground offensive during Operation Desert Storm.
 Alliant Techsystems supplies high-quality precision armament, ordnance, marine and information storage systems to the U.S. government and its allies. The company is headquartered in Edina, Minn., and employs 7,100 people throughout the United States.
