Major Industries GQ-284 Open-Rotor Turbojet

Major Industries’ open-rotor turbojet. Give credit when using. (I believe this is the first open-rotor turbojet on SP. Correct me if I’m wrong.)

Concerning the confusion between Prop-fans and Open-Rotor Turbojets:
Yes, these are two different things. Prop-fans are like turboprops, but they are much more powerful, and are positioned at the front of the engine, whereas open-rotor turbojets are simple turbojets with extended rotors to increase fuel efficiency.

    @KnightOfRen You may now brag about Major Industries making one of the first open-rotor turbojets on SimplePlanes.

    @MajorSix Sorry, had to go to bed. Thanks for the partnership! I was going to use contra-rotating props and jet engines on my Blitzableiter, but the idea of a turboprop-jet engine mix sounds awesome (Open-Rotor Turbojet). So I'm going to make a new version of my Blitzableiter with this. So thank you. And I will tag you

    @MajorSix before I saw this I didn’t even know this fancy name. Most of us call this a Propfan engine.
