This is a follow on order from Mowag for 90 ISBe5.9 engines for the Danish army. Commenting on the success, Mr Dave Hurley, Cummins Defence Leader said “Cummins was chosen to supply the ISBe 5.9 engines because of their excellent reliability and durability. Furthermore, theISBe engines are renowned for their reduced engine noise and fuel consumption which is very important in this demanding application.”
In addition, the Cummins ISBe 5.9 engines enhance the stealth capability of the Eagle IV vehicles due to their high power to weight ratio and clean combustion technology with reduced visible smoke.
Cummins ISB Engines
The CumminsISBe engines family has established an outstanding reputation for power, performance and driveability appropriate for the latest generation of all-terrain, multi-purpose defence vehicles. Indeed, the ISBe engine comes with a military pedigree that few other engines can match, based on outstanding success of its B series predecessor in the British and U.S. Armies.
The 198 Eagle IV vehicles will be jointly manufactured in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland, and at Kaiserslautern, Germany. Deliveries already commenced in 2008 and will extend to 2010.
