DRDO’s GTRE has sent request for information (RFI) for setting up  two Aero Gas Turbine Test facilities & a new 130 Kn Gas Turbine. According to RFI the new engine will be equipped with TVC nozzles. The requirements listed for vendors also calls for manufacturing of 6-axis thrust stand.


GTRE has listed some specs of proposed engine as follows. The max reheat thrust is listed as 130 KN but with a weight of 2170 kg (Target) it may indicate application towards marine propulsion  as in case of Aero applications it may not suit T/W ratio that well.
