Woodstock makes Bradley Tank components

According to Army Guide, Ametek Rotron of Woodstock is the manufacturer of these components for weapons systems:
*Fans, connectors and motors for the Bradley M2/M3 infantry fighting vehicle and the M7 BFIST fire support vehicle pictured here. Don't let the name make you think that the M7 is some kind of fire engine. It's "a variant of the M2A2-ODS Bradley. It is used as an artillery forward observer vehicle and laser designator, providing major improvements in first-round artillery accuracy...". Used in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
*Fumes Evacuation System for the Crusader SPH XM2001 self-propelled howitzer. The Crusader was a program so useless and so costly that even Rumsfeld canceled it, in 2002.
