A8B. This is a V8 410/380 ps engine which was constructed for the Swedish tank M/42 weight 22/23 tons. Cyl. volume 22.6 litres, power 410/380 ps, oil 40 litres, petrol 350 litres. Weight engine 1050 kg. Max speed 42 km/h. There was also an alternative from Scania Vabis with their straight 8 or 6 cylinder diesels.

A8B gave much heat so it needed good fans behind the cooler. Much power was taken here. Perhaps over 100 ps. Behind one fan there was also the turbo.

Note that each bank had it's own carburettor. Any pipe between them is not shown here.

Engine unit for MBT tank S. It was built with 2 different power units. One turbo forced V6 diesel engine having 5.16 litres volume giving 300 ps. Furthermore one turbin which could be engaged if neccessary giving 490 ps. This unit was made this way to save fuel consumption. Taking power was an automatic gearbox which was connected to the power units.

The engine unit seen from above. Nearest side you see the V6 engine and on the other side the turbine. At this time MBT tanks normally had turbins to get sufficent power. Instead there was a great amount of petrol consumption. Later diesel engines were built with over 1000 ps or more.

STWC3. When B17 and then B18 were built i Sweden there were no suitable engine. England could not sell the sleeve valve star engine. Instead there were trials to buy from USA. But Swedish defence was not allowed for this. Instead stored Italian Piaggio engines with only 900 ps was bought from Nazi Germany. During the time the Pratt & Whitney giving 1085 ps engine was copied. This was done in Trollhättan and Eskilstuna Munktells in new engine factories. Volvo took later over this and started Volvo Air Engines. The question of licens was then solved after the war. For this agreement there are many rumours. 434 engines were made in Sweden. Note that the English and German engines gave up to 2000 ps and more.
