Caption: Military jet engine. Technicians assembling a Lyulka AL-31F jet engine. The AL-31F is a turbofan engine fitted with an afterburner. It produces 74.5 kN (kiloNewtons) thrust, boosted to 122.58 kN with the afterburner selected. It was designed primarily to power the Soviet Sukhoi-27 'Flanker' series of air superiority fighters. Its design is especially tolerant of disturbed intake airflow, which allows aircraft to perform extreme manoeuvres during combat. Photographed at the NPO Saturn factory at Ufa, Russia.
