From the Vault: Allison Transmission Newsletters

World of Tanks forum member Volketten shared with us a link to a digital library containing old newsletters from Allison Transmission company.  In regards to tanks and armored vehicles, Allison is primarily known for the CD-850 series transmission found in the Patton and M60 tanks and the X-1100 transmission of the Abrams tank.  We thought these newsletters might be of interest to anyone that had family that worked at Allison or is curious about the history of the corporation.  View the full library here.

We have created a gallery below of the 1952 AllisoNews Special Edition focusing on military transmissions.

From the Vault: Investigation of the Factors Involved in Steering Tracklaying Vehicles

A couple weeks ago we came into the possession of a 1970 report on factors involved in steering tracklaying vehicles conducted by the Allison division of General Motors for TACOM.  This report will probably be of limited interest to most people, but perhaps a few people will find it worth looking at.  As far as we can tell, this report has not been posted anywhere else.
