The Pratt & Whitney F100 Aircraft Engine

The Pratt & Whitney F100 was designed in the late 1960's for the Grumman F-14 Tomcat and McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle fighters, it first ran in 1970 and although not chosen for the Grumman F-14 Tomcat the Pratt & Whitney F100 powered a McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle for the first time in 1972. The Pratt & Whitney F100 has undergone numerous models as technology improved increasing power and reliability while reducing weight. Although the USN's F-14 Tomcat never used the Pratt & Whitney F100 the USN's General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon has done so.
