MBT-70 Shillelagh rocket firing

Engines which produce thrust to drive a vehicle forward including aircraft propulsion and rockets


  • Aircraft propulsion - the process of imparting motion to an aircraft by means of a force such as a thrust of air or energy released by burning fuel
  • Electromagnetic launching - a form of aircraft propulsion that uses linear motor drives rather than conventional steam pistons to launch carrier-based aircraft from catapults
  • Electrothermal launching - a form of aircraft propulsion that uses an external source of energy to heat a fluid or gas, which is then vented out an exhaust nozzle to produce thrust
  • Rockets - devices propelled by the ejection of matter, especially by the high velocity ejection of the gaseous combustion products produced by internal ignition of solid or liquid fuels
