Naval Engine gas turbine - General Electric LM2500

The General Electric LM2500 industrial and marine turboshaft gas turbine is a derivative of GE Aircraft Engines CF6-6 aircraft engine.

The LM2500 was first used in the Spruance class of destroyers and the related Kidd class, which were constructed from 1970. Was subsequently used into the 1980s in the Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates, and Ticonderoga class cruisers.

The LM2500 is license-built in Japan by Ishikawajima-Harima, in Italy by Avio (Fiat), and in India by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.
