The propulsion configurations of current gas turbine powered military and commercial vessels have been established based upon available power ratings of existing engines, relative to the performance requirements of ship builders and operators. Development of the LM2500+ engine has extended power capability with minimal changes to the physical parameters of the current LM2500 marine packages. This paper explores the extended possibilities of gas turbine based propulsion in both military and commercial vessels through application of increased gas turbine power in packages of essentially current size and weight such as the LM2500+.
