Um den Treibstoffverbrauch zu reduzieren und in weiterer Folge die Logistik zu vereinfachen, wurden 1969 bei den Simmering-Graz-Pauker (SGP) Werken in zwei M47 die Motor- und Getriebeblöcke des M60A1 eingebaut. Die Ergebnisse der Umbauten waren erfolgreich und die neue Version wurde M47D (“Diesel”) bezeichnet. Doch aufgrund der hohen Kosten für die Umrüstung wurde dieses viel versprechende Projekt abgebrochen.
To minimize fuel consumption and harmonize logistics the Simmering-Graz-Pauker (SGP) works installed engine and gearboxes of M60A1 in two M47’s. The results were successful and the tank was designated M47D (“Diesel”). Due to the high costs for backfitting the M47 fleet, this very promising project has been cancelled.
