Wrong on three counts. The Abrams was designed by Chrysler Corp, not the Department of Defense. Chrysler used a mix of a commercial cad system (Computer Visions??) and paper. It's spelled Abrams, not Ahbrams.
A bit of history. BRL cad was originally designed to do 3d modeling of target vehicles for purposes of ballistic modeling, not for design. I haven't used it for 10 years so have lost touch with what it can do now.
