Description: The MTR390 engine was developed jointly by Rolls Royce, Turbomeca and MTU to meet the high performance requirements of the Eurocopter's Tiger multipurpose combat helicopter. The turboshaft engine family develops between 1,200 to 1,800 shaft horse power (shp). The engine consists of three modules with ECMU (Engine Control and Monitoring Unit). The MTR390 is suitable for civil and military uses having low ownership costs, low fuel consumption, low acceleration and simple maintenance. As of March 2011, more than 300 engines have been produced logging more than 33,000 flight hours.

The MTR390-E is a more powerful version of the MTR390 engine launched on December 8, 2005, to power the Tiger HAD multipurpose combat helicopter. The new engine is optimized for operations in hot and high environments. The Spanish Army is the launch customer for the engine with 55 units on order to power its 24 Tiger HADs. France and Germany are also expected to order the enhanced engine.
