A fully developed turbojet engine, with minor modifications, was combined with a light-weight free-wheeling power turbine to produce a compact 8000-hp propulsion unit for naval marine service. Commercial control features were combined with aircraft components to provide a completely automatic remote control. The engine has been developed to burn diesel fuel, and has demonstrated the ability to run 500 hr at full load, indicating a normal service life of 1000 hr between overhauls.
