Re: AMCA News and Discussions

The F110 that powers the F16 is longer and has a wider diameter than the F414. However the F22 engine pw119 has similar dimensions as the f110. So it is possible to get to that thrust within those dimensions. Just need the tech.

Yeah, so it just poses another set of design constraints just like an external one. Will be interesting if any chaiwallahs or panwalahs get to hear about development of an internal EOTS for amca by the yehudis.
