As for engines, engines are the choice of the country; the Abrams utilizes the gas-turbine engine, but that provides more power; however, they are
getting ready to replace that engine with a better engine eventually.

But the U.S. military uses lots of things of foreign-design, U.S. make. A lot of electronics systems is aircraft are of French design. The engines on
a lot of U.S. tanker aircraft are a joint French-American product. Most of the guns in the U.S. military are of German design. And then all the other
stuff is U.S. made as well.
