The J79 turbojet engine has been developed by the American company General Electric. In 1955, GE marked the first testflight with the J79. The J79 with afterburner has been used for the 1-engine F-104 Starfighter and the 2-engine F-4 Phantom. In the first years of the J79, it was one of the most advanced military aircraft engines but it had a high fuel consumption (TSFC) compared with current military turbofan engines. The J79 has also been used for the F-21 Kfir from the United States Marine Corps and the B-58 (out of service).
The F-4F Phantom II is currently still in operational service with the German Air Force (Luftwaffe). These phantoms are each equipped with 2 General Electric J79-GE17A turbojet engines with after burner. They have been build in license by the German company MTU.
