The technology of the EJ200 makes it both smaller and simpler in layout than current powerplants while giving it lower fuel consumption and an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio - all vital factors in enhancing the multi-mission performance and effectiveness of combat aircraft. Power-to-weight ratio is a measure commonly used when comparing various vehicles (or engines), including automobiles, motorcycles and aircraft. ...
