The A4 Pacific was designed for high-speed passenger services. The application of internal streamlining to the steam circuit, higher boiler pressure and the extension of the firebox to form a combustion chamber all contributed to a more efficient locomotive than the A3. This class was also noted for its streamlined design, which not only improved its aerodynamics, thus increasing its speed capabilities further.
