AGT1500 Gas Turbine Engine

AGT1500 Gas Turbine Engine

Main Battle Tank Force

Honeywell’s AGT1500 is the turbine engine used by the U.S. Army and militaries around the world to power their M1 Abrams fleets. The engine provides 1,500 horsepower, enabling superior acceleration and mobility, propelling the 72-ton tank up to speed of 42 mph. The AGT1500’s reliability and performance has enabled the Abrams vehicle to become a staple of the military arsenal, accumulating more than 40 million miles over the past 25 years.

The AGT1500 gas turbine engine has been the force behind the Abrams M1 Main Battle Tank (MBT) mobility since the early 1980s. It provides the power, speed, quick acceleration and quiet operation which have earned the M1 such high marks across all military theatres. It has maneuvered more than 40 million operating miles, and demonstrated outstanding in-service reliability through the enhancements introduced through the total integrated engine revitalization (TIGER) program.

Its features include compact design, cold-starting capabilities, instant power, multi-fuel capabilities and stealthy operation. This engine is the world standard for tank durability and survivability.
