GE Aviation's T-700-701D engine powers the newest UH-60M Black Hawk tactical transport helicopter
     
GE Aviation is not unaccustomed to significant contracts, with the company awarded a major multi-year contract extension in 2009. Friday’s contract covers not only the Taiwanese FMS but also US defense and other government agency requirements.

The T700 engine family powers a number of US-manufactured helicopters, including the UH-60 Black Hawk, which Taiwan purchased 60 of in 2010. General Electric T700 engines are a family of turboshaft engines in the 1,500–3,000 shp.

The T700-401C/-701C Powers multiple Sikorsky H-60 Black Hawk variants for the US Army, US Air Force, US Navy and US Coast Guard, as well as the US Army’s Boeing AH-64 Longbow Apache.

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.
