The EJ200, a two-shaft turbofan engine with afterburner in the 90 kN thrust category, is built by EUROJET Turbo GmbH, a consortium made up by MTU, Rolls-Royce, Avio Aero and ITP. The engine powers the Eurofighter and its export version, the Typhoon.

MTU’s production share is 30 percent. MTU developed the low- and high-pressure compressor and the electronic engine control and produces these components for all engines. It is also responsible for assembling, testing and maintaining all engines ordered by the German Armed Forces.
