The EJ200 which produces a thrust of 60kN (13.500 pounds) and 90kN (20.000 pounds) with afterburner is specially developed for the new fighter jet of these 4 countries; the 2-engines Eurofighter Typhoon.
2-shaft EJ200 has a 3-stage fan, 3-stage low pressure compressor, 5-stage
high pressure compressor, annular type combustion chamber, 1-stage low pressure
turbine, 1-stage high pressure turbine, afterburner and a variable geometric
