In spite of the fact that Continental is most well known for its motors for light flying machine, it was likewise contracted to transform the air-cooled V-12 AV-1790-5b fuel motor for the U.s. Armed force’s M47 Patton tank and the diesel AVDS-1790-2a and its subsidiaries for the M48, M60 Patton and Merkava fundamental fight tanks. The organization likewise handled motors for different autonomous producers of vehicles, tractors, and stationary gear (pumps, generators and hardware drives) from the 1920s to the 1960s.
