US firm Allison to provide transmissions for IDF's Eitan future AFCs

Allison Transmission received the first production order in September 2021, with deliveries expected to continue for multiple years

Allison Transmission, an American designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions for tactical wheeled and tracked defense vehicles, and medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced last week that the Israeli Ministry of Defense selected the Allison 4800 Specialty Series™ (SP) transmission for their future 8-wheeled Eitan Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV).

The Eitan (Hebrew for “strong”) will replace a portion of Israel’s aging fleet of M113 tracked armored personnel carriers. The development and production of the Eitan is being led by the Armored Vehicles Directorate at the Israeli Ministry of Defense. Three variants of the Eitan will be fielded – an armored personnel carrier (APC), a command vehicle and an infantry combat vehicle equipped with an unmanned turret and 30mm cannon.

Allison Transmission received the first production order in September 2021, with deliveries expected to continue for multiple years. The 4800 SP transmissions will be assembled within power packs by the vehicle’s power pack integrator - Rolls Royce Solutions America (Formerly MTU America).
