The Rolls-Royce T406 (company designation AE 1107C-Liberty) is a turboshaft engine which powers the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey tiltrotor. The engine delivers 6,000 shp (4,470 kW) and shares a common core with the AE 3007 and AE 2100 series of engines.

The V-22's T406 powerplants are housed in wing-tip tilting nacelles, allowing the distinctive flight characteristics of the V-22. For take off and landing the nacelles are directed vertically (90° to fuselage), while for forward flight they are rotated parallel to fuselage.

In April 2012, the DoD ordered 70 AE 1107C engines for the Osprey, with options for up to 268 engines.
