MEP-805A TQG: Replacement for Obsolete Engine Parts

BLUF: Due to obsolete engine parts, the MEP-805A tactical quiet generator is being replaced with the MEP-805B.

The tactical quiet generator (TQG) engine, NSN 2815-01-350-2208, is used in the MEP-805A TQG (30kW, 50/60Hz), LIN G74575, NSN 6115- 01-274-7389. But parts for these engines are obsolete and no longer sustainable.

Units currently using the MEP-805A that need secondary parts or line replaceable units (LRUs) for repair must replace the next higher assembly, which is the entire system. In short, MEP-805As with consistent repair issues need to be replaced by MEP-805Bs.

Before ordering a MEP-805B, verify your current authorization first. The MEP-805B will be the MEP-805A replacement until advanced medium mobile power source (AMMPS) generators are fielded.
Also, contact the item or integrated logistics support managers listed below. They’ll validate all unit authorizations and arrange for replacements. For assistance, contact the following:
