THE GENERAL ELECTRIC TF34‐GE‐2 turbofan engine was designed and developed specifically to fulfil the powerplant requirements of the S‐3A. Consequently, engine design considerations included both anti‐submarine warfare mission requirements and compatibility with a carrier‐based environment. To meet both, the engine features high thrust‐to‐weight, low fuel consumption over a wide power range, low noise and smoke, and corrosion resistant materials throughout.
