Cummins has been at the forefront of military power applications for over 50 years. Indeed, Cummins is the largest supplier of diesels for defence purposes in the Western world, with over 250,000 engines in military and naval service. Under the most demanding operational conditions Cummins engines have acquired a battle proven reputation for ruggedness and dependability. On both land and sea they have provided that vital edge in speed and power, essential to success. Away from the front line, in logistical support for example, Cummins engines are well recognised for outstanding fuel-efficiency and durability.

Cummins engine range extends all the way from a compact 3.3 litre to a mighty 78 litre diesel - covering the 60 to 3,500 hp power band. Premium power is available for almost every type of application, from AFVs to high mobility vehicles, logistical trucks, fast patrol boats, combat engineering equipment, generator sets and more.

With every Cummins engine comes the added benefit of in-depth application engineering to ensure a perfect power match. Ultra-low profile Cummins powerpacks are utilised in main battle assets such as the VSEL AS90 self-propelled howitzer and Bradley heavy AFV.

For the latest generation of lighter AFVs currently being developed, Cummins offers the inherent advantage of high power-to-weight performance for added mobility. Repowers are also a key area of Cummins expertise, represented by a major dieselisation programme now underway for the UK MoD for the Alvis CVR(T)family which includes the Scorpion light tank.

New INTERACT power capability

In the key 135 to 640 ps power sector, Cummins has recently introduced a range of new 3.9 to 15 litre engines. The ISB, ISC, ISL, ISM and ISX will provide a new level of capability for all types of AFVs and military trucks. At the heart of these new engines is Cummins highly sophisticated INTERACT electronic engine platform. INTERACT provides the capability for fully electronically integrated drivelines, reaching out from the engine management functions to link with the vehicle transmission, braking and traction systems.

Significantly, all INTERACT engines are available with integrated engine braking. This feature offers rapid reaction braking without the give-way thermal signature associated with service brakes.

The world’s leading diesel engine company.
