SEOUL - South Korea's state-run Agency for Defense Development (ADD) will work with Korean Air to develop a new stealth unmanned air vehicle (UAV). Korean Air will develop a manned-unmanned teaming system. This system will enable a single manned aircraft to control three-to-four stealth UAVs. These stealth UAVs will be able to carry out missions on their own, including precision strikes on ground targets.

EVENDALE, Ohio -- LM2500 engines powering the ship with 88 MW giving it a maximum speed of 28 knots. The addition of the Vikrant to the Indian Navy’s fleet is a significant accomplishment for the Government’s "Make In India" initiative, as 76% of the content is indigenous, adding India to an elite group of nations with indigenous aircraft carriers (IAC). With the commissioning of the Vikrant, the Indian Navy has 18 GE Marine engines in service, with additional engines in production to support the ongoing Project 17A ship construction.

The IAC project started in 2007, and when selected, GE Marine announced the LM2500 marine gas turbines would power the ship and be built by Indian partner Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). The 262-meter-long carrier has 14 decks, can accommodate a crew of 1,700, and is capable of operating 30 aircraft.

For more than 30 years, GE has worked with HAL, which assembles, inspects, and tests all LM2500 gas turbines built for the Indian Navy. The LM2500 gas turbine kits were manufactured at GE's Evendale, Ohio, facility and assembled and tested by HAL's Industrial & Marine Gas Turbine Division in Bangalore, India. HAL is one of the world's leading aerospace companies involved in the manufacture and maintenance of aircraft, helicopters, avionics and aerospace defense equipment.

With the world’s most market-dominant gas turbine from GE, the Indian Navy and 39 other navies around the globe have worldwide support, whether onshore or at sea, and interoperability benefits with other allied ships. GE has delivered gas turbines onboard 633 naval ships worldwide and provides 95% of the commissioned propulsion gas turbines in the United States Navy fleet. With the LM2500’s outstanding track record of being ready for the fight, coupled with its ease of maintenance and global support, the LM2500 continues to be the gas turbine of choice of the world’s navies.

MIRAMAR, Calif. -- The “Black Knights” of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 314 returned today from their deployment with Carrier Air Wing 9 aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. The Black Knights are the first Marine Corps squadron to deploy the F-35C Lightning II aboard an aircraft carrier.

While underway for more than 200 days, the Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group sailed more than 65,000 nautical miles conducting deterrence and presence operations, demonstrating the interoperability of the Navy and Marine Corps team. By leveraging their complementary authorities and capabilities, this team advances the prosperity, security and promise of a free and open, rules-based order.

“The Black Knight’s successful deployment of F-35C Lightning II aircraft aboard USS Abraham Lincoln further reinforces 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing’s commitment to naval integration,” said U.S. Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Robert B. Brodie, 3rd MAW assistant wing commander.

Through the course of this deployment, VMFA-314 flew nearly 1,200 sorties and logged more than 2,200 flight hours. The Black Knights and CVW-9 participated in dual carrier operations in the South China Sea with the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group, joint exercise Valiant Shield, bilateral exercises Noble Fusion and Jungle Warfare and Exercise Rim of the Pacific.

VMFA-314 was the first Marine Corps squadron to receive the F-35C Lightning II after retiring their legacy F/A-18C aircraft and is comprised of approximately 200 Marines and Sailors.

3rd MAW continues to “Fix, Fly and Fight” as the Marine Corps’ largest aircraft wing, and remains combat-ready, deployable on short notice and lethal when called into action.
