Apparently the gas turbine in question (Model 502) was originally developed in response to a USN requirement, presumably on behalf of the USMC. I wonder what the intended vehicle was?
Ah okay, that makes more sense. It seems the original description was incorrect.
Justo, do you know where I can find more information regarding Japanese centrifugal-type jet engines? I’m curious how they compare to the axial series.
and thanks for the amazing images and information, as always
