For more than 25 years, the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps have depended on GE power. Now, the F414 Enhanced Engine is delivering expanded capabilities for next generation combat needs. With up to 18% more thrust and twice the horsepower of its predecessor, the F414 Enhanced Engine is poised to complete missions on time and on task.

Raising the performance bar

The F414 Enhanced Engine builds on proven experience to deliver increased thrust for air-to-air weapons improvements, increased air-to-surface capability and enhanced electric airborne attack.



F414-GE-400 engines provide today's combat-proven Boeing Super Hornet and Growler electronic attack with significant survivability and payload improvement compared to earlier weapon systems.
