MTR390

Developed in cooperation with Turbomeca and Rolls-Royce, the MTR390 is a turboshaft engine featuring a free power turbine. It is used on the French-German escort and anti-tank Tiger helicopter.

Production engines of the MTR390-2C version (basic version) were delivered from 2002 to mid-2010 (of which 242 for the Franco-German tiger program and 51 for the Australian ARH program). In total, the order book stands at 445 engines, including exports. In cooperation with Spain’s ITP, MTU developed an enhanced engine version (MTR390-E), which delivers 14 percent more power. The development was completed, and deliveries of production engines have already started. An initial batch of 150 units will be produced for France, Spain and Germany. In all, 445 MTR390 engines have been delivered so for or are on firm order.

MTU’s share in the Enhanced program comprises the combustion chamber and the high-pressure turbine as well as engine control and monitoring unit, including the operating system. MTU's stake in the basic engine version MTR390-2C includes the combustion chamber and gas generator turbine, and a number of accessories. All production engines were assembled at MTU in Munich.
