Turbomeca Marboré
Teledyne Continental J69

The Turbomeca Marboré I was an enlarged version of the Palas and was first flown in 1951.
In 1951 Continental obtained a license to build the Marboré II, designating their version the Model 352. The U.S. military designated this engine the J69. The J69-9 produced from 660 to 880 lbs thrust.

Continental began adding transonic axial compressor stages. These improved Model 356 engines produces up to 1,920 lbs (8.5 kN) thrust.
