Honeywell has designed and tailored many military application auxiliary power units. This line of products started with the 85 series auxiliary power units supporting the C-130 cargo aircraft all the way up to the most recent fighter applications with the G250 auxiliary power unit, supporting the F22, and the G230 auxiliary power unit, supporting the F35 Joint Strike Fighter. Not to forget, Honeywell continues to support the defense helicopter applications from attack helicopters like the Apache AH-64 with the 36-155 auxiliary power unit up to utility applications with the Blackhawk UH-60 with the 36-150BH and the Chinook CH-47 with the 36-150CH. Honeywell’s broad auxiliary power unit model scale has enabled secondary power solutions for fixed wing, rotor wing and even ground cart applications that support global military logistics. If there is a secondary power need, Honeywell has a solution!
