The French company, Safran and India’s Gas Turbine Research Establishment will be holding the last rounds of discussion on the development of the new 110kN Thrust Class engine based on the M88-4 ECO core that could power the future Advance Medium Combat Aircraft [AMCA], a 5th generation fighter-bomber developed by HAL as reported by Tribune India.
Dr. Girish S Deodhare, Director General, Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), recently had confirmed that the AMCA program will be executed under the special purpose vehicle (SPV) model involving private players. AMCA engine will have 75kN of Dry Thrust and 110kN of Wet Thrust that will allow it to operate in Indian hot-humid conditions without compromising its weapons carrying capabilities or in aircraft performance.
A new 110kN engine will be manufactured in India with help of many Private sector companies with many of the non-core technologies that will be developed by the DRDO. The 110kN engine will also find its way in the Naval TEDBF program and a Single-engine optimized variant in the Tejas MkII jets.
