Rolls-Royce RM60 | Rolls-Royce Conway

Rolls-Royce Conway

Rolls-Royce RM60

Produced in response to an Admiralty contract for a coastal-craft engine with good cruising economy, the RM60, although based on aeroengine philosophy, was designed from the first as a marine gas turbine. Two RM60s went to sea in 1953 in the former steam gunboat HMS Grey Goose, the world's first warship to be powered solely by gas turbines.
