Does anyone know how the continuously-variable transmission on the new Japanese type 10 MBT is supposed to work?  It's described as a hydraulic device, so I assume that means that the driveshaft of the engine is connected to a hydraulic pump, and that the final drive is connected to a hydraulic motor.  Either the pump or motor or both would have some sort of variable-displacement geometry to adjust the effective gearing ratio.

However, the descriptions available online are by no means clear and unambiguous.  Does anyone know for sure?

It's a hydro-mechanical transmission. Try reading this.


For a very brief explanation:

All power is at first changed to a hydraulic form, and is sent to epicyclic gears and Hydrostatic CVT, from which the rest of the work is done.
