What is the peculiarity of the new engines for the American F-35 fighters



The powertrains currently in use are expected to be replaced with General Electric XA100 or Pratt & Whitney XA101 extended range engines. And thanks to the use of an adaptive power unit, the range of F-35 fighters will increase from the current 2,175 kilometers to 2,897 kilometers.

It is noted that the price of the new engine will be more expensive than the current one, but at the same time it will allow the F-35 Lightning II to compete much more effectively with its Chinese counterparts. The beginning of work to replace existing components will require additional funding, which will be implemented during the allocation of the US defense budget for 2023.
