Help bmpd: “Apparently, we are talking about a diesel engine 6TD-3 - the latest derivation of the family of Kharkov tank two-stroke diesel engines 5TD / 6TD. 6TD-3 engine in the power class 1400-1500 HP It was started by the creation of the Kharkov engine-building design bureau (HKBD) as far back as 1980 for the promising Molot tank. However, the development of 6TD-3 stretched out for many years. For the first time, the overall layout of the 6TD-3 engine was publicly demonstrated in September 2011 of the year in Nizhny Tagil, and even then it was announced that 6TD-3 was preparing for mass production. As you can see, this preparation continues to this day. The ability of HKDB and the Malyshev Plant to bring this engine to acceptable levels of reliability and resource in the current production and economic conditions in Ukraine is doubtful. ”
