Rolls-Royce RB.44 Tay
By 1948, Rolls-Royce had designed the Tay turbojet, also a centrifugal-flow design. However, as Rolls-Royce was then developing an improved design with an axial compressor, which would become the Avon, the development and production of the Tay turbojet was left to Pratt & Whitney. However, Rolls-Royce retained the rights to the Tay outside of the United States.
A total of 4,108 were built.
The Tay/J48 was a thirty percent enlargement of the preceding Nene/J42, and was produced both with and without afterburning.
Hispano-Suiza Tays have been installed in Dassault Mystere II, III and IV fighters, and the Tay 250 is for the Mystere IVA. A development of the Tay by the French company is called the Verdon (following the "River" nomenclature) and has a modified compressor with new guide-vanes, revised flame-tubes and combustion chambers, and new turbine-blades and disc. A special afterburner has been developed for this engine, which is to replace the Tay in the Mystere IVA.
