The F119-PW-100 is an afterburning turbofan engine developed for the F-22 advanced tactical fighter by Pratt & Whitney;.

The engine delivers a thrust of approximately 35,000 lbf (156 kN) and is designed for supersonic flight without afterburner (supercruise.) Delivering almost 22% more thrust than current models, with 40% fewer parts the F119 allows sustained supercruise speeds of up to Mach 1.4. The convergent/divergent thrust nozzle incorporates thrust vectoring, which gives the F-22 excellent maneuverability. Similar performance has been achieved by modern Russian aircraft such as the MiG-35.

The Pratt & Whitney F135;, which powers the Lockheed Martin F-35, is a derivative engine of the F119.
