J52 ENGINE

The 7,500-pound-thrust J52 engine was first built for the North American Hound Dog missile.

With models producing up to 11,200 pounds of thrust, the J52 soon became the Navy's workhorse, powering McDonnell Douglas' A-4 Skyhawk series and Grumman's A-6 Intruder and EA-6B Prowler. More than 5,000 J52 engines were produced, spanning nearly three decades.
