The Performance of Mil-L-2105B Gear Oils in Military Equipment


Over the past 15 years the Army has been very active in the field of extremepressure gear lubricants. The requirements of military ground vehicles cover a broad range, from passenger cars through the heaviest types of both over-the-highway and cross-country or off-road vehicles. The need for simplified logistics dictates that, where possible, a single, multipurpose gear oil should be used in all types of gear boxes and rear axles where extreme-pressure properties are normally required. This paper reviews the progress that has been made to achieve this goal.
