When it was formed in October 1969, Turbo-Union it was claimed to be the largest aero-engine consortium in the world. Its first product was the RB199, which was Europe’s biggest ever military engine program. Turbo-Union went on to be a major player in the production of fusion turbine engines. After the end of the 1st Robotech War, Turbo-Union re-established its corporate headquarters in the rebuilt capital of the United Kingdom, as well as a branch office on the Robotech Factory Satellite. The head office on Earth was closed at the beginning of the 3rd Robotech War for obvious reasons. Currently, Turbo-Union is in the process of re-organizing after declaring bankruptcy in 2068. Possible options being discussed include a merger with one of its old parent companies, Rolls-Royce.
