The F404 was developed into the larger F414 turbofan, as well as the experimental GE36 civil propfan.
The F414 originated from GE's widely used F404 turbofan from the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, enlarged and improved for use in the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

The General Electric F404 and F412 are a family of afterburning turbofan engines in the 10500 - 19000 lbf class (static thrust).
The Rolls-Royce Conway, the world's first production turbofan, had a bypass ratio of 0.3, similar to the modern General Electric F404 fighter engine.

The F404 was developed into the larger F414 turbofan, as well as the experimental GE36 civil propfan.
Agreement to flight test the UDF was reached in April, with flights beginning in late 1986 to assess a 25000 lbf demonstrator based on a General Electric F404 core.

For the F/A-18, GE based the F404 on the YJ101 engine they had developed for the Northrop YF-17, enlarging the bypass ratio from .20 to .34 to enable higher fuel economy.
Developed for the Northrop YF-17 entry in the Lightweight Fighter (LWF) competition, the YJ101 formed the basis for General Electric's highly successful F404 engine.

GE developed the F404 for the F/A-18 Hornet, shortly after losing the competition for the F-15 Eagle's engine to Pratt & Whitney, and losing the Lightweight Fighter (LWF) competition to the Pratt & Whitney F100 powered YF-16.
It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio.

It reached a speed of 2 Mach and a height of 42000 ft. The demonstrator was initially powered by General Electric F404-GE-400 afterburning turbofans from the F/A-18 Hornet, instead of the Snecma M88, to reduce the risk that often comes with a first flight, and since the M88 was not considered sufficiently mature for the initial trials programme.

GE developed the F404 into the F412-GE-400 non-afterburning turbofan for the McDonnell Douglas A-12 Avenger II.
The aircraft was to be powered by two General Electric F412-D5F2 turbofan engines, each producing about 13000 lbf of thrust.
