Never understood why they took so long to add a APU to them? Our hovercraft used a turbine (RR Gnome), you could adjust the fuel pump to run different fuels. Jet B was really hard on the fuel pumps as it had poor lubricating properties. That would not be an issue with diesel. However for Canada, it would be a matter of getting any fuel in the required amount at the right time that would be the issue.You can run diesel in the Abrams. Just still burns it like a pig.
The V4 at least has the APU, so unless you are moving the vehicle you don’t need to run the turbine.
