GE’s latest turboshaft engine, developed for heavy lift applications, is now demonstrating game-changing power.
T408 delivers performance
When compared to its predecessor – GE's T64 turboshaft engine powering the CH-53E Super Stallion aircraft – the T408 provides transformational performance improvements. To date, the T408 has logged more than 11,000 hours of ground and flight test in support of a variety of Department of Defense (DoD) programs.
