M47 with Diesel

This is an interesting conversion – the Austrian M47D. Basically, the Austrians were looking into replacing the original M47′s engine with the M60 series diesel for the same reasons the Americans did – better economy and reliability. Simmering-Graz-Pauker produced two prototypes of this setup but the project got cancelled.
