The Klimov TV2-117 (initially Isotov TV2-117) is a Soviet gas-turbine turboshaft engine intended for helicopter use. Developed in the early 1960s from the Klimov TV3-117 by the Isotov Design Bureau the engine became the first purpose built gas turbine engine for helicopter use by the Soviet Union with previous helicopter turbines being adapted aeroplane powerplants. First run in 1962, it was later produced by Klimov, production ending in 1997.
