Eduard Brassin 648020 F-16CJ Block 50 F110 GE-129 engine 1/48
Since entering service in 1992, the F110-GE-129 has proven to be the most successful fighter engine in U.S. Air Force history. Because of the F110 engine’s proven safety track record and heritage of high reliability, the F110-GE-129 has been chosen to power more than 75% of the USAF’s single engine F-16 Block 50/52 aircraft.The F110-GE-129 has established a track record of excellence that is unmatched by any engine in its class. Due to its inherent design and GE’s unyielding emphasis on Six Sigma quality, the engine has demonstrated unmatched levels of on-wing performance retention.No F110-GE-129 has ever been removed from service due to insufficient performance!The F110-GE-129 has also been the choice of the Turkish, Greek, and Japanese air forces to power their single engine F-16s. The -129 is also qualified on the F-15 Strike Eagle and was recently chosen by South Korea to power their new F-15K fighters.
