TP400-D6

The most powerful turboprop engine in production

TP400-D6

A strong partnership

Facts & FiguresThe TP400-D6, a key to the A400M's unrivaled capabilities

High speed

Delivering an output of 11,620 shaft horsepower at sea level and a three-shaft configuration combining state-of-the-art engine modules

LONG RANGE

With a high autonomy of 4,800 nm (8900 km), the TP400 D6 can power extended round trip sorties from its main operating base

HIGH TECHNOLOGY

To optimise engine utilization and enable post-flight troubleshooting, the engine benefits from a dual Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC)

HIGH ALTITUDE

Operating up to 43,000 ft

MODULAR DESIGN

Interchangeable modules improve engine availability for operational support and efficiency for all maintenance activities

CIVIL CERTIFICATION

First military engine to be fully civil certified from the outset by EASA in 2011.

The TP400-D6 has completed more than 100,000 engine operating hours in July 2017
