A new engine for the US military’s ME-109E armored personnel carrier

article Posted by Ars Technic on March 06, 2019 03:05:12A couple of years ago, we covered the idea of building a military vehicle that uses mechanical engineering internship work to build an armored personnel vehicle (APV).

It seemed like a cool idea, and while it’s not new, it was also relatively new technology.

The APV was envisioned as a low-cost alternative to the older APCs and the military had been considering it for decades.

The APV concept was also being studied in Europe, but the US Army didn’t pursue the APV program until after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Now, a company called Meldrum Engineering has been awarded a contract to design and build a small-engine repair vehicle (SEV) that would be used by the US Military as a means to help restore an APV.

The ME-111E is a US Army APC that’s been outfitted with an M113 engine.

This engine has a maximum of 4,000 horsepower and is powered by a 2.2-liter turbocharged inline four.

The engine’s design, however, was changed in recent years, and Meldram Engineering was awarded the contract to redesign the engine and rebuild the vehicle.

The SEV is powered mostly by a single engine, which was originally designed for the M113E, but Meldrams engineers designed the SEV to be a small engine.

The ME-112E engine was originally intended to be used for APVs.

The engine that powers the ME-113E is actually a 2-liter, four-cylinder diesel.

Meldrums engineers decided to use a more efficient 2.0-liter V6 to make up for the loss of the larger, 3.0 liter, inline-four engine.

According to Meldrium, the ME 112E engine is a little more than 4 percent more efficient than the original 2.5-liter engine that powered the APC.

The 2.6-liter version of the engine is the same one used in the M109E, and the ME112E is also the same engine used in older APC variants like the M110.

This is an example of what the ME111E engine looks like.

The main landing gear is the large centerline, while the tail section is a smaller, twin-turbo V6 engine.

The two engines are separated by a small intake and exhaust, which are powered by four electric motors mounted on the vehicle’s chassis.

The two engines share the same crankshaft and pistons.

The four electric motor shafts are powered via an eight-speed gearbox.

The gearbox has a gear ratio of 8.0:1.

The rear end of the vehicle has a similar layout as the APCs, with the main landing gears and four exhausts located on the side of the car.

The small engines are mounted at the front of the rear deck.

Meldon Engineering has designed the engine to be relatively low-maintenance and to be very reliable.

The powertrain also has a small air compressor that can compress the air that’s escaping from the engine.

This engine looks very similar to the ME108 engine in the APVs, but it’s been upgraded to a smaller V6.

The main landing wheels are made of steel, while some of the exhaust wheels are aluminum.

The exhaust system is designed to be quieter, which Melders engineers said is necessary to help the vehicle stay out of the way of incoming fire.

Meldrum engineers also designed the chassis of the SEVs to be more robust than the APCS, to keep the APCV from tipping and falling off during an attack.

The vehicle also features an engine mount, which is a common requirement for APCs.

The company says the ME114 engine is an engine that uses an electric motor to power the generator, while ME113 engines use an electrical motor.

Mellys engineers also used the M107 engine as a baseline for the SEIV, but they added a new powertrain that could power the vehicle from a generator.

The first test model of the Meldrim Engine is expected to be delivered in 2019, but production of the vehicles will begin in 2020.
