GE’s website notes that the T700 military turboshafts have earned a reputation for exceptional performance in combat and under the worst environmental conditions. Designed to be rugged, reliable and easily maintainable, current T700 models apply advanced technology to an experience base of more than 50 million hours of operation.

The -701D powers both the newest Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk and Boeing AH-64E helicopters. Through the incorporation of proven advanced technology, the -701D provides improved durability as well as improved performance while still maintainable with current ground support equipment.
