Oh and reading is FUNdamental!

From the article:

Mitsubishi Heavy will be responsible for development and production of the combustor module, assuming 7 percent of the project, Japan's largest heavy machinery maker said in a statement. A company spokesman declined to comment on the potential value of the contract.

The combustors only? Your topic title is quite misleading.

I "cut and pasted" it directly from the top...so don't accuse me of making "misleading topic titles"....granted maybe I could have personally changed it around a little...

No matter how you slice it, the title **IS** misleading. Mitsu is only developing one component of RR's 7E7 engine. This is common among engine projects, to have many risk sharing partners.
