8:28 there is a mistake, that tank isnt a Challenger, because it is Chieftain Mark 10 and it is powered by 19 litre, 2 stroke 6 cylinder, 12 pistons Leyland L60 engine.

To bad the LeClerc did not make the list, as it uses an V8 that is overcharged with an gas turbine, making it easiest on of the fastest tanks of the line by modern standards (when it works...)

We had the Scorpion tank with the Jag 4.2 petrol engine way back when in NZ. It was not unknown for people traveling at 60 mph on a NI highway next to an army camp to be overtaken by a Scorpion, giving them one helluva fright.

Goldmarble 4 months ago
Just wanted to add a bit more detail about the FV101 Scorpion and its engines, as what you said feels a bit misleading. The FV101 and it's subsequent family of tracked vehicles (That range from the FV102 Striker ATGM launcher, the FV104 Samaritan Ambulance, to the FV107 Scimitar armed with a 30mm autocannon), were initially designed to use the Jaguar J60 engine. This engine was commonly found in civilian use in cars like the Jaguar E-Type, or the XJ-6. It's an DOHC inline six, was pretty good for its time. The engine was chosen because it had a high power to weight ratio for the time, and was easily sourced. It was mated to a David-Brown TN15 transmission, that gives it both 7 gears forward, and reverse. Yes, the Scorpion can go just as fast in reverse, as it can forwards. Britain kept using the Jaguar engine for some time, I believe they started converting to diesel in the early 2000s. Export versions of the Scorpion however, had, I believe, started being offered with a Perkins diesel of some format that I can never find any concrete information on, and the Cummins 5.9L which everyone knows and loves. However, the 5.9L is a bit of a tight fit in the engine bay apparently, and makes it a pain in the ass to work on (Referencing youtuber Matsimus ruvid.net/video/video-GMWaLWApiAc.html ) Apparently, at some point a company was looking to offer an upgrade to the Steyr M16 3.6L Turbo Diesel engine, but I cannot find any concrete evidence on it, who it is, or if anyone has bought this upgrade.

YKS Gaming I found video there you can see this new engine 6TD-4 and other parts of new Ukrainian tank project. Ukraine was a backbone of Soviet tank industry and still producing better tanks (t-64bv, Oplot) than Russians. Russia is capable to produce only image))))
norgiter 5 months ago
YKS Gaming Ukraine uses 6td-2 engines for Oplot (1200h.p.) and developed new modernization of such engine 6td-3 and 6td-4 with power up to 1800h.p. Speaking about Russian T-14 engine they have speak about 1500-2000h.p. BUT it’s “raw” engine and there is no serial production not of T-14 nor of this x-shape engine. Anyway it’s two times bigger, thirsty and heavier then 6TD-4.

Light mebium and heavy tanks dosent exist anymore Is MBTs (Main battle tanks) IFV (infrantry fighting vehicle) APC (armor personal carrier) Souts And Mobile Sam site
Glenn Tang
Glenn Tang Month ago
Kinda...as far as I can tell... Technically MBTs are medium tanks that are performant enough to do heavy tank things at light tank speeds, making them basically universal. However, light tanks occasionally still pop up for use by airborne mechanized units, with their designation now coming from the fact that they are light enough to air-drop for fast deployment.

Electric trucks and electric tanks aren't the same thing tho, you see. Tracks are massively harder to drive than wheels as their rotational mass is much higher and they have a much larger friction to drive. As a result, the motors cannot simply 'coast' while cruising, like a truck. Also, they take a long time to charge, which is going against the current trend of warfare (i.e. extremely fast paced to surprise enemies) and there is the cooling problems too, as the batteries are large and heavy, unlike a gas turbine, even tho both output massive amounts of heat, a gas turbine is small in comparison to a battery, so it has much more space to do cooling. In a truck it is a small problem but in a tank that often go off-roads and have to deal with harsh weather conditions(extreme heat), I think cooling is going to be a major problem as to move a 60-ish ton tank you need a lot of power(that's why electric double decker bus is still not viable rn and a bus only weighs 20 tons). And then there are the high powered Infrared sensors for night vision or the autoloading systems, those use a lot of electricity too. Btw, if you want to put the battery at the bottom like Tesla cars, it is not possible as the bottom hull is used to store the suspension components and of there is a mine blast, which is very common nowadays, it might damage the battery in contrast to a normal tank it is able to continue on if the mine hasn't blown it's track off or penetrated it's lower hull.
MrKeys57 5 months ago
@YKS Gaming wrong! Tesla have developed engines and batteries for heavy duty use, they have big Tesla trucks for big heavy loads for long distance, they could be converted to tanks some way, i think the strongest can haul 70ton 250miles, and thats quite a lot, only wait a couple of y and tanks might be electrified, also with all the infrastructure and logistic it needs. Dont strive backwards, and be so oldschool!
YKS Gaming
YKS Gaming 5 months ago
No, a tank is too heavy and it requires too much power to move the damn thing. You couldn't even use regen braking as the track itself already have a lot of resistance. And the max operation range is going to be like 50 miles or something

PL-01 But a stealth tank is pretty useless as very few military actually use radar to target or spot tanks. Modern militaries usually use Infrared sensors as tank engines has a large heat signature.

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.

Reginvalt Year 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.
YKS Gaming

As do any gas turbine like the ones on the M1 Abrams or the T80 And the "multi-fuel" engines on the Chieftain and the Challenger tanks are pretty pointless as a change in fuel actually requires engineers to take at least a few hours to modify.
