Development (The Hystory) Faun SLT-50 8x8 ex military Tractor Trucks
The development of the FAUN SLT 50-2, or Elefant, as it is more commonly known, can be traced back to 1965, when the former West Germany and the US decided to design a tank transporter known as the Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET) to carry the MBT-70 then under development by both countries. In the US, the Chrysler Corporation was the prime contractor for the tractor while in Germany FAUN was responsible for the tractor and Krupp for the trailer.
A major upgrade of all 324 tractor trucks was also carried out by FAUN between 1993-2000 as part of the major maintenance cycle. Following the upgrade, the designation SLT 50-3 was applied and 100 vehicles were prepared for long-term storage.
Description Faun SLT-50
The SLT 50-2/50-3 is an (8 × 8) vehicle with powered steering on the front two axles. The fully enclosed cab is of steel and glass fibre construction and has seats for the driver and three passengers. The upgrade programme included the fitting of air-sprung seats for the driver and co-driver.
The drive train consists of a diesel engine coupled to a ZF 4 PW 200 H2 gearbox, W 500 10 torque converter and two-speed transfer box. The original engine was a 29.92-litre Mercedes-Benz MB 837 Ea-500 turbocharged V-8 unit developing 730 hp at 2,100 rpm and 2,650 Nm torque at 2,650 rpm. This was replaced during the SL 50-2 to SL 50-3 upgrade by a more modern, more powerful, and more efficient 21.6 litre Deutz MWM TBD 234 V-12 unit developing 734 hp at 2,100 rpm and 2,799 Nm torque at 1,650 rpm.
Axles are FAUN Type 17 and both front and rear bogies are fitted with a inter-axle lockable differential and each axle has a cross-axle lockable differential. The front and rear bogies are suspended by torque rods and taper leaf springs arranged in parallel with progressive springing. Airbrakes are provided for both the tractor and semi-trailer and an automatic load-sensitive brake valve ensures equal braking under all load conditions. The parking brake consists of spring-loaded cylinders mounted to the rear wheel brakes. A retarder is connected directly to the gearbox and is also connected via an electric control line to the service brakes of the semi-trailer.
