-The M1 Abrams is powered by a 1500 hp (1119 kW) Honeywell AGT1500 (originally made by Lycoming) gas turbine, and a six speed (four  forward, two reverse) Allison X-1100-3B Hydro-Kinetic Automatic transmission, giving it a governed best speed of 45 mph (72 km/h) on paved  roads, and 30 mph (48 km/h) cross-nation [[http://www.rmf-slc.com/|this month]] .  With the engine governor removed, speeds of around 60 mph (100 km/h) are feasible on an enhanced  surface even so, damage to the drive train (especially to the tracks) and an  elevated risk of injuries to the crew can take place at speeds above 45 mph. The tank can be fueled with  diesel fuel, kerosene, any grade of MOGAS (motor gasoline), or JP-4 or JP-8 jet fuel the U.S. Army makes use of JP-8 jet fuel in order to  simplify logistics. The gas turbine propulsion system has confirmed rather  dependable in practice and combat, but its high fuel consumption is a critical logistic issue (starting up the turbine alone consumes 40 liters of fuel).+The M1 Abrams is powered by a 1500 hp (1119 kW) Honeywell AGT1500 (initially created by Lycoming) gas turbine, and a six speed ( forward, two reverse) Allison X-1100-3B Hydro-Kinetic Automatic transmission, giving it a governed top speed of 45 mph (72 km/h) on paved  roads, and 30 mph (48 km/h) cross-country [[http://www.rmf-slc.com/|silo storage tanks]] .  With the engine governor removed, speeds of about 60 mph (one hundred km/h) are attainable on an enhanced  surface nevertheless, damage to the drive train (specially to the tracks) and an  increased threat of injuries to the crew can take place at speeds above 45 mph. The tank can be fueled with  diesel fuel, kerosene, any grade of MOGAS (motor gasoline), or JP-4 or JP-8 jet fuel the U.S. Army utilizes JP-8 jet fuel in order to  simplify logistics. The gas turbine propulsion method has confirmed fairly  dependable in practice and combat, but its high fuel consumption is a significant logistic concern (beginning up the turbine alone consumes 40 liters of fuel).
  
-The high speed, high temperature jet blast emitted from the rear of M1 Abrams tanks  tends to make it hard for the infantry to proceed shadowing the tank in urban combat. The turbine is noisy, comparable to a  helicopter engine, despite the fact that the noise character (pitch) is drastically  different from a modern diesel tank engine, lowering the audible distance of the sound,  hence the nickname, "Whispering Death". Future US tanks might return to reciprocating engines for propulsion, as 4- stroke diesel engines have verified very productive in other present day heavy tanks, e.g <a  href="http://www.rmf-slc.com/fuel-tanks-above-ground-are-the-safe-way-of-storing-combustibles">visit my website</a> . the Leopard 2, Challenger two and Merkava. The modest size, simplicity, power-to-weight ratio, and simple removal/replacement of the turbine power pack does,  even so, present considerable benefits over any  proposed reciprocating replacement.+The high speed, high temperature jet blast emitted from the rear of M1 Abrams tanks  tends to make it challenging for the infantry to proceed shadowing the tank in urban combat. The turbine is noisy, comparable to a  helicopter engine, though the noise character (pitch) is considerably  distinct from a modern diesel tank engine, reducing the audible distance of the sound,  thus the nickname, "Whispering Death".

The tiny size, simplicity, power-to-weight ratio, and straightforward removal/replacement of the turbine power pack does,  nevertheless, present substantial advantages more than any  proposed reciprocating replacement.
  
-The Abrams can be carried by the C-five Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III. The limited capacity (1 combat-prepared tank or two transport-prepared tanks in a C-five, a single combat-ready tank in a C- 17) brought on serious logistical issues when deploying the tanks for the First Gulf War, although there was sufficient time for 1,848 tanks to be transported by ship [[http://www.rmf-slc.com/uses-of-water-tanks-for-sale|worth reading]] .+The Abrams can be carried by the C-Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III.
