Yes, thank you . I trained on the Sheridan in early 70's. It weighed approx.18 ton and we had a 155 MM Main gun that was capable of firing a laser guided Shilleighly Missle.Also Aluminum Casting

VisioRacer Like this stuff - yes, but the video title was amazing tanks with obscure engines, now I'm sorry, but apart from the radial engines in the Shermans and the opposed-piston 5cyl in the T-64, all the engines in the rest of the tanks seem completely ordinary to me, for their period of time. I'd expect something like a M1 Abrams with its multifuel gas turbine, or a Stridsvagn 103 (an obscure tank in itself) which used a Rolls-Royce K60 opposed-piston 6 cylinder engine (replaced by a Detroit Diesel turbocharged V6 in later version 103C) combined with a Caterpillar gas turbine. Now that's what I call obscure engine, a gas turbine combined with a reciprocating engine of unusual configuration ( diesel sixes are typically inline, not Vee, and the Rolls-Royce K60 opposed-piston is just bizarre - two stroke, able to run on almost anything that will combust)

I hope I'm giving a bit more info. The Rolls Royce Meteor was built at the Rover works with some steel parts instead of aluminium as the engine was never meant for flying so weight was less of an issue (I know about the supercharger situation) I thought Churchills had the Nuffield Liberty engine (American design built by Britain) or was that some models? Matilda 2's also had 2 Leyland engines fitted. I saw some newsreel of Russian T34's clanking into Berlin and amongst them was a Matilda (How that got past the Soviet Commisars, I don't know) The Challenger tank morphed from the Chieftain because the Saudi's wanted a Rolls Royce diesel instead of the Leyland lump. Rolls Royce Diesels were bought out by Perkins Cheers Tony

8:31 is a Chieftain Tank. Different tank to the Challenger 2 in the rolling shot after. Chieftain is using a 6 cylinder 12 piston two stroke L60 engine. A very unique sound

The first clip of the challenger isn’t actually a challenger, it’s a centurion or chieftain 🤦🏼‍♂️
rossmum Month ago
Chieftan. Centurion is the white-painted tank with "MUSEUM" written on it during the IKV video. The Chieftan has a very prounounced, pained-5-cylinder-screaming kind of sound because the Leyland L-60 is very similar in design to the T-64's 5DTF, and had a similarly problematic development.

Actually the T-34 wasn't a good battle equipment. Just the high number of them won second world war for Russians.

What about Panhard EBR? A 12 Cylinder Flat aircooled tank running over 100km/h with two drivers and hydropneumatic suspension made in 1955!
Reginvalt 5 months ago
There no light, medium and heavy ones nowadays. There are only MBTs (main battle tanks) now. Unification occured after the WW2, so everything named "light tank" after that date is either SPG, AFV, or garbage (tank lookalike for sales). T-64 engine is 2-stroke and it is bad in everything except weight/power ratio. Abrams and T-80 have turboshaft engines.

Your first shot of a Challenger is in fact a Chieftain which as 6 cylinders and 12 pistions, an oposed piston blown two stroke. The Challeneger has a Rolls Royce designed turbocharged CV12 engine of 1200BHP. Someone is not doing their homework properly.

The Chieftan tank had an engine that could run on petrol, diesel or anything else that would burn, only it did not work very well.

There are other 2 examples of tanks that you maybe forgot to put in the list: Leopard 1 and Type 90.
EA SS 6 months ago
@ minute 8:27 with the intro of Challenger II, you are showing a late model Chieftain until the correct AFV is shown @ 12:14. Also there is nothing obscure about a V12 engine, nor most of the engines shown.

As far as I know, radial engines (such as the Wright Cyclone) equipped US tanks far before the M4 Sherman. The M3 Stuart and the M3 Grant/Lee for instance. Some M3 Grant/Lee were also builded with Chrysler "5 in one" A57 Multibank engines, before the Sherman existed. As US army preference was going to the more academic and reliable Ford GAA, the main part of Sherman "Multibank" engined tanks were shipped to the british...

The tank you showed with the Challenger 2 was a Chieftian mk10. You can See it and Hear it with its exhaust.

Russian tanks better! The most reliable, cheapest, most simple in field repair. They can be done a lot during the war and can be quickly repaired right in the forest.

The Sheridan's engine wasn't obscure in the US back then. Detroit Diesels were everywhere, but 2-stroke engines have since fallen out of favor here. 🙁

Those Chrysler flathead sixes saw service in many an airport tug. I'm not surprised that design was used to power tanks.

With the exception of the Sherman with the Chrysler a57 engine setup and the t64 5cyl 10 piston engine, all of the various types are very common in one fashion or another. The Detroit diesel 6v-53 was a v6 engine with 53 cubic inches of displacement per cylinder, this along with the 6v-71 and the 6v-92 were used extensively throughout the US in buses and early commercial trucks. The v12 diesels you can find to this in large construction and mining equipment and large boats (fishing trawlers for example) I would have loved for you to show examples of the Chrysler a57 engine and how a 5 cylinder 10 piston engine would work. Other than my minor complaint this is a good video, thanks

The tank shown at 8 mins 27 is a Chieftain and not a chellenger

For the M-551 Sheridan, your details list the engine as an I-6, the 6V-53T is a V-6.

Loved the sound of the Russian 5-cylinder OP engine. I never knew they had anything like that. It seems there were quite a few interesting engines built behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War that we in the west knew little to nothing about. Other engines used in armored vehicles that could be mentioned are the Rolls-Royce and Leyland opposed-piston I6's, and the hyperbar-boosted V8 used in the French Le Clerc tank.

Man, you missed the M1 Abrams which is turboshaft-powered with 1500 hp.

I did find something that just doesn't reality. It was when the M551 came up, it was never a "tank", and 2) when the specs came up on the r/hand side it showed the engine as an I-6 which is way wrong. the text along the bottom did say the correct engine as a 6V-53T which stands for V-6 53 Series Torbocharged. nice vid though.

yeah, the other lad is right. your start of the challenger section is showing a stillbrew version of the chieftain tank with the Leyland L60 6 cylinder 12 vertically opposed piston diesel engine making a lot of noise and smoke and not enough horse power.

What is obscure on a V12 diesel?
Mohammed Shahid Nawaz
@VisioRacer, How can a Engine with 5 cylinders have 10 pistons? (The tank in question is T-64)

VisioRacer can you share a link where I can see and understand?

Opposed pistons share a single cylinder

T-34’s were garbage in terms of reliability, they were only good because they had numbers, to easily change gears on them you needed a hammer and a crowbar, I could see a Matilda make this list instead of the T-34 because it had 2 double decker bus engines and transmissions just because they were easy to find
