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 basic MTR390 engine, also known as the MTR390-2C, is rated at 1,500-shp and is intended to power the Tiger HAP, Tiger ARH and Tiger UHT combat and support helicopters. The first production engines were delivered to the German Army in March 2002 (Tiger UHT) and to the French Army in March 2003 (Tiger HAP).
