Rolls-Royce Dart | Armstrong Siddeley Viper

Rolls-Royce Dart 
Armstrong Siddeley Viper
The  Viper  was  designed  as  a  result  of experience gained with the larger Sapphire turbojet. Originally built as a 1,640 lb thrust short-life engine for target drones, it later emerged as a long life engine for the Jet Provost.  Subsequently  the  engine  was developed by Bristol Siddeley as the power plant for civil executive jets, and Rolls-Royce for present generation trainers and light strike aircraft with a maximum thrust of 4,400 lb (5,000 lb with reheat).
