The Perkins Eagle Tx is a development of the highly successful Eagle range of diesei engipes developed in the mid-1970s.
Since that time, in various guises, the Eagle engine has been supplied to the British Army as its primary logistic vehicle engine powering vehicles made by Foden, Seddon Atkinson, ERF, Scammel (UNIPOWER) and others, with over 7,000 engines in service.
Today it is in production rated at 350 hp as the 350e, for installation in the Leyland DROPS (8 x 6) vehicle. The new 400 Tx is in the UNIPOWER BR90 (8 x 8) bridgelaying vehicleforthe British Army.
As the C6 320 1"F12 rated at 320 hp, the Eagle powers the Royal Ordnance Combat Engineer Tractor (CET) which is used by India, Singapore and the UK. This is the only known armoured vehicle application for the Eagle Tx diesei engine.
Rated from 300 to 400 hp the Eagle Tx complies with Euro 2 emission regulations and can thus be retrofitted into older logistics vehicles.
