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 T706 engine is a derivative of the General Electric CT7-8A turboshaft engine. The newest member of the T700/CT7 engine family features a larger compressor, hot section improvements and a full authority digital engine control (FADEC). These characteristics are meant to provide enhanced performance to the US Army MH-60M Black Hawk special operations helicopter in hot-and-high mission scenarios. So far, the T706-GE-700 engine has been selected to power up to 61 US Army MH-60M helicopters.

In August 2005, the CT7-8B5, now T706-GE-700, turboshaft engine rated at 2,600-shaft-horsepower (shp) was selected to power the US Army's MH-60M special operations helicopter. General Electric received a $15.5 million contract for engine development and testing. The first production engines are scheduled for delivery in 2008.
