I am working on a book on internal combustion engines ( I am including
turbines as ICs).  I have a chapter of comparisons of modern engines for
various applications.  Horsepower figures into many of the comparisons.
I wish to use thrust horsepower (thrust times velocity) for the

Can I use max thrust and cruise velocity together?  That is, can modern
turbofans develop max thrust at normal cruise speeds?
