In doing so, the side cooling blocks were also practically enlarged in order to increase the cooling capacity. From V 100 2022 onwards, this required an extension of the engine front end by 200 mm which was compensated for by buffering.the locomotive frame and resulted in a new length over buffers of 12,300 mm. In terms of design, only the length of the circumferential sheet metal needed to be adjusted. However, the biggest difference to the V 100.10 is the omission of the protective grating in front of the cooler shutters that were now exposed.
