Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Army's testing problems with the XM900E1 tank round and differing cost estimates for the M762 electronic time fuze.

GAO found that: (1) the Army's fiscal year 1990 budget request for procurement funds for the tank round was premature because testing revealed accuracy and armor penetration problems; (2) although the Army has type-classified the time fuze, it plans further testing to confirm correction of a premature detonation problem; and (3) the Army has not determined the final unit price for the fuze because contract negotiations are not complete.
