General Electric F110

General Electric F110 is an afterburning turbofan jet engine produced by GE Aviation. The F110 engine uses the same engine core design as the General Electric F101. The F118 is a non-afterburning variant. The engine is also license-built in Eskisehir, Turkey by TUSAŞ Engine Industries (TEI).

The engine is used in General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, General Dynamics F-16XL, F-14B/D Super Tomcat, F-15S/F-15K/F-15SG/F-15SA Strike Eagle and Mitsubishi F-2.

The F110-GE-129 is a derivative with greater performance of the proven F110-GE-100.
