In fact, the rapid change needed to respond to new threats and the employment of new technology to respond to more traditional threats, in new ways, may be the defining attributes of this military base. Today, Fort Hood is the largest military installation in the United States and is charged with the introduction, training and testing of new infantry equipment, tactics and methods. It is best known as the birthplace of the M1 Abrams Tank, M2/3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, the Multiple Rocket Launch System (MRLS) and the AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter.
