The Perkins Eagle Tx is a development of the highly successful Eagle range of diesei engipes developed in the mid-1970s.

Since that time, in various guises, the Eagle engine has been supplied to the British Army as its primary logistic vehicle engine powering vehicles made by Foden, Seddon Atkinson, ERF, Scammel (UNIPOWER) and others, with over 7,000 engines in service.

Today it is in production rated at 350 hp as the 350e, for installation in the Leyland DROPS (8 x 6) vehicle. The new 400 Tx is in the UNIPOWER BR90 (8 x 8) bridgelaying vehicleforthe British Army.
