Like its contemporaries, it features state-of-the-art technologies such as single-crystal high-pressure turbine blades, powder metallurgy discs and full authority digital engine controls. The M88-2 was built with easy maintainability and reduced operating costs in mind. the M88-2 consists of twenty-one modules for interchangeable and replaceable repairs without the need for recalibration or balancing.


An additional improvement, the M88-2E4, reduces fuel consumption by up to 8% compared to the original M88-2.
