To investigate the new powerplant I called the GP Batteries office in
“Why did you select this particular aircraft for the ad?” Iasked.
Here is the spokeswoman’s reply: “The rationale for this aircraft was because this plane is the most awesome in the US Air Force, fast and powerful and most important of all can refuel – just like our battery – can recharge.”
Perhaps GP’s next move will be an alternative to thePratt & Whitney F135 powerplant for the F-35. Apparently there is an opening in this niche.
