Description: The T700 engine was designed for the US Army's UH-60A Black Hawk helicopter as a result of lessons learned in Vietnam. The key requirements of this engine were reliability, operation under adverse environmental conditions and low maintainability.

The T6E1 engine rated at 2,500-shp is a derivative of T700 engine. T6E1 reduces pilot workload and enhances maintainability. It features an advanced, increased-airflow compressor and a dual-channel, full-authority digital electronic control (FADEC) system. The engine was co-developed by GE and Avio SpA of Turin, Italy. The T6E1 is one of two alternative propulsion systems approved to power NH90 helicopters.

The Italian Ministry of Defense selected the General Electric T6E1 engine to power their NH90 helicopters with first deliveries beginning in late 2005. The Italian Army will receive 60 NH90s and the Italian Navy will receive 56 NH90s both models powered by two T6E1 engines. The Italian MoD also has placed options for 160 additional T6E1s. Avio SpA will assemble and test the engines for Italy's NH90s.
