1. A differential having a brake device, comprising:
a drive shaft,
two output shafts,
a differential housing which has an inlet opening for the drive shaft and two opposite outlet openings for the output shafts,
a differential cage and
at least two brake devices,
wherein each of the at least two brake devices is a drum brake which has a passive element, which exhibits a cylindrical frictional surface, and brake shoes, frictional surfaces of which brake shoes can be placed against the cylindrical frictional surface of the passive element, wherein in each case the passive element of a respective one of the at least two brake devices is fastened to the differential cage and/or a respective one of the two output shafts in such a way that the cylindrical frictional surface is installed coaxially in relation to the respective opening of the respective one of the two output shafts, and the brake shoes are held in a pivotable manner on a carrier plate which is flange-connected to an edge of the respective opening.
