General Electric offers upgraded core on F-414 engine to generate 130kn thrust for Indian AMCA stealth jet

US firm General Electric has presented a proposal to India offering to develop a new engine using its 116 kilonewtons F-414 enhanced engine as a baseline to power India’s AMCA Mark 2 program that will meet the crucial objectives of achieving supercruise capabilities and reduced thermal signature.

General Electric has extended an offer to India to utilize their Ceramic Matrix composite engine core parts which require 20% less cooling air and can also withstand higher temperatures thus allowing the core to generate thrust exceeding 130 kilonewtons with the upgraded F-414 core.

The baseline 98 kilonewton thrust F-414 NS6 engine has already been selected to power India’s Tejas Mark 2, TEDBF, and AMCA Mark 1, and India now has the option to select a new engine with upgraded Ceramic Matrix composite enhanced core that has the potential to surpass 130 kilonewtons of thrust.

But it is also important to note that the Indian Air Force has earlier rejected the same offer from General Electric to produce an upgraded 110kn+ thrust F-414 engine variant for AMCA Mark 2, now it is to be seen that whether the IAF accepts this new offer or not.
