  1. The Al Khalid derived from Norinco Type 90IIM MBT. It was in the early 90s, when India started to test their Arjun MBT. Pakistanis looked for a MBT design that could be produced by herself. Norinco provided their own Type 90IIM prototype, this is an MBT design which comprised many Western components, such as engine and transmission. There were 4 prototypes for Al-Khalid development, namely P1, P2, P3 and P4. P1 has a Chinese tank diesel engine with ZF LSG3000 transmission. P2 has a British Perkins CV12 Condor diesel engine with French SESM ESM500 transmission. P3 has a
  2. I figured we should have a thread dedicated to transmissions and final drives of AFVs. I'll kick the thread off by going old school with this article from the May-June 1921 issue of the Ordnance Journal on "Final Drive for Combat Vehicles."
  3. As we know, AMX 10 RC is a very special wheeled AFV for it's skid steering system. It can perform neutral steer, a.k.a. pivot steer or steer in place. The transmission case is similar to some tank transmission. The driver uses steering levers instead of a steerig wheel, and it's almost identical with those on AMX 10P tracked AFV. ↑wheeled AMX 10 RC ↓tracked AMX 10 P It even had a variant running on tracks: As for steering principle, there are different descriptions. Some info says AMX 10 R
  4. I always knew the Pz 35 used a compressed air system for changing gears, this has been written about in several books and said to have been rendered inoperable by the Russian Winter. I didn't know until watching the new "Matilda Diaries" episode on youtube that the Matilda II infantry tank also used compressed air to change gears. Anyone know if any other WW2 tanks used compressed air systems? Any records of the Soviets having issues with this system in their Lend Lease Matilda tanks in the winter?
  5. Tank design is often conceptualized as a balance between mobility, protection and firepower. This is, at best, a messy and imprecise conceptualization. It is messy because these three traits cannot be completely separated from each other. An APC, for example, that provides basic protection against small arms fire and shell fragments is effectively more mobile than an open-topped vehicle because the APC can traverse areas swept by artillery fires that are closed off entirely to the open-topped vehicle. It is an imprecise conceptualization because broad ideas like "mobility" are very complex
