ST6 gas turbine engines in the 600-shp class have been used in many different vehicles ranging from high-speed turbo trains to Indianapolis roadsters. This experience has lead to the development of operating characteristics and design features of the engine which have improved its performance and reliability. In addition much has been learned about how to rate turbine engines and how to predict maintenance and overhaul periods in vehicular operation. This experience will be useful for future applications of turbine engines to vehicles and for design input to new turbine engines being considered for automotive use. The ST6 has proven itself well suited for prime or auxiliary power use in many types of vehicles.
