ESM 350 powershift transmission

The ESM 350 is a high-performance transmission that was developed by RENK for installation in T type combat tanks (T72 and derivatives), and is also produced in series by RENK. It features eight forward gears, an infinitely variable superimposed steering system, and a high-performance brake system. In addition to installation in new T vehicles, it can also be subsequently integrated in the course of combat performance upgrades without necessitating changes to the original hull of the vehicle. RENK also offers complete power pack solutions for these purposes.
