The Teledyne CAE F106 (company designation Model 472) was a small American turbofan engine developed to power cruise missiles.

Development and design[edit]

The F106 engine was developed during the early 1970s to power the missiles being developed for the United States Navy's cruise missile competition. It powered the LTV YBGM-110 which lost the competition to the BGM-109 Tomahawk. While the F106 only powered the YBGM-110 prototype, either it or the Williams F107 could have powered either missile.[1] However, the Navy selected the F107 engine with the BGM-109 missile.

The F106 engine was also a competitor to power the AGM-86 ALCM cruise missile for the United States Air Force, but it likewise lost to the Williams F107 engine.[1][2]
