    Background: BRITISH INDUSTRY IS ANTICIPATING A LARGE ORDER FOR AIRCRAFT ENGINES FOR ONE OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS OF UNITED STATES FIGHTER AIRCRAFT. NEGOTIATIONS ARE REPORTED TO BE NEARING COMPLETION FOR THE SALE OF ROLLS ROYCE SPEY ENGINES FOR AMERICA'S LOW-LEVEL FIGHTER CALLED THE CORSAIR.

    THE ORDER, IT HAS BEEN REPORTED, COULD BE WORTH UP TO 100,000,000 STERLING (280,000,000 DOLLARS).

    THE ENGINE WOULD BE MORE POWERFUL VERSION OF THE ONE THAT'S ALREADY IN USE IN BRITAIN'S BUCCANEER BOMBERS AND TRIDENT AND ONE-ELEVEN AIRLINES. AMERICAN PHANTOM FIGHTERS, BEING BUILT IN AMERICA FOR THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVY AND THE ROYAL AIR FORCE, ARE ALSO POWERED BY THE SPEY.

    THE NEW CONTRACT, IF CONFIRMED, WOULD BE THE BIGGEST STEP TOWARDS OFFSETTING THE COAST OF THE PHANTOMS AND AMERICAN F-IIIs ORDERED BY BRITAIN.
