The EuroPowerPack is the combination of the MTU MT883 Ka-500/501 diesel engine delivering over 1100 kW (1500 PS) shaft power with the ten-speed (five forward, five reverse) Renk HSWL 295TM automatic transmission for the use in heavy tracked vehicles like tanks.

This very compact power pack delivers as much or more power than the most powerful tank engines currently in service, but offers increased fuel efficiency and needs less space.
