This paper discusses the use of 570/571-KF engine in patrol boat propulsion applications. The text is composed of two basic sections — 1. The Engine, and 2. The Applications:

The engine section includes a brief review of the background and development of this free turbine engine, as well as a description of the main components and design features. The performance characteristics and fuel consumption rates are discussed relative to patrol missions.

In the applications section a comparison is made of the current 570 installations (both civil and military), along with a survey of the planned applications. Finally a review of proposed uses of these engines in other naval vessels is included to show the adaptability of this size engine in FPB and PB missions, and demonstrate the feasibility of retrofitting other turbine or diesel powered patrol boats with 570/571-KF engines.

The conclusion is drawn that for patrol boats with conventional or modified hull forms, the Allison 570/571 engines are well suited due to their excellent performance and power density ratios.
