Description: The F100 engine was developed to power the twin-engine F-15 Eagle air defense fighter. Subsequently it was adopted by the F-16 Fighting Falcon multipurpose fighter.
The F100-PW-220 engine was more dependable, lighter and smarter than -100 engine. However, in terms of thrust it was less capable than GE's F110 models.
The -220 engines were supplied to F-16C/D fighters produced from 1984 until 1991. F-15C/D fighters were also powered by F100-PW-220 engines.
The F100-PW-220E is an upgrade kit applied to older F100-PW-100 engines that provides the same thrust and reliability of a production -220 engine. In 1997, the US Air Force initiated the -220E retrofit program providing earlier F-15s (A/B models) the current combat capability associated to latest F-15C/D/E models.
