Back in the mid/late 80s AvWeek had an article on an engine Allison was testing that was in the 30,000lb thrust range but supposedly smaller than an F100 (ISTR they said F404-size but it's been 20 yrs). At the time it got me thinking there would be three companies proposing engines for the ATF and then all of a sudden nothing. Never heard another word about any advanced Allision engine design until MUCH later when RATTLRS comes into being and lo and behold there is Allison in the thick of things. Any idea whatever happened to the fighter engine?
