The X353-5B propulsion system consists of a J85-GE-5 turbojet engine less afterburner used as a gas generator, a diverter valve to direct the gas flow, and an X353-5B lift fan equipped with vectorable discharge louvers. The X376 pitch trim control fan derives its power from turbine discharge bleed of J85-GE-5 turbojet engines less after-burners. The X376 is a partial admission tip turbine-driven fan which is connected to the J85 engines through airframe- provided ducting. The fan employs two separate scrolls containing the turbine inlet nozzles this feature provides for one-engine-out operation.
