Pratt & Whitney’s military engines include the F135 engine for the 5th generation F-35 Lightning II, the F119 for the F-22 Raptor, the F100 family that powers the F-15 and F-16, the F117 for the C-17 Globemaster III, the J52 for the EA-6B Prowler, the TF33 powering AWACS, Joint STARS, B-52, and KC-135 aircraft, as well as the PW4062 for the KC-46A Pegasus.
Pratt & Whitney's F135 propulsion system is the engine of choice for the F-35 Lightning II, fifth generation, advanced, single-engine tactical fighter developed by Lockheed Martin in conjunction with BAE Systems and Northrop Grumman.
The F119-PW-100 turbofan is the first operational fifth generation fighter engine. It combines stealth technologies and vectored thrust with high thrust-to-weight performance to provide unprecedented maneuverability and survivability.
Certified at 40,400 pounds of thrust, Pratt & Whitney’s F117 is the exclusive power for the U.S. Air Force’s advanced transport, the C-17 Globemaster III, developed by The Boeing Company.
Powering all of the U.S. Air Force’s F-15 Eagles and the majority of the world fleet of F-16 Fighting Falcons, Pratt & Whitney’s family of F100 engines has been selected by 23 air forces around the world.
