"Tactica" equipped with mtu 6R 106 engines
Posted on September 10, 2003
For the first time, mtu Friedrichhafen is working with the British industry for series production of a military vehicle.
The mtu 6R 106 engine is derived from the commercial DaimlerChrysler truck engine OM 906 LA that has proven its reliability in more than 320,000 Mercedes-Benz trucks. Service and spare part supply are therefore available on a very broad basis. In its power class this engine belongs to the most modern engines available for military vehicles. In terms of compactness and rating, it takes a leading position. In addition to its strong performance, this engine is further characterized by its great traction power. It achieves a torque of 1300Nm already at 1500/rpm. The water cooled 106 engines are equipped with an electronic injection system and individual pumps for each cylinder. The combination of engine electronics and individual pumps allows a precise injection and optimizes the fuel efficiency and the emission level. Because of this innovative technology, the 106 engines fulfill the current emission levels of Euro3.
Via an interface, the engine electronics can be linked up with various units in the vehicle, with conventional gauges and controls and with a diagnosis component. The electronic engine management also raises the reliability of the engine. Should a problem occur, the engine electronics issue a warning signal and, if necessary, temporarily reduce the engine output. An error memory integrated into the electronic management system reports when, where, and why a problem occurred.
