D-36 engines and their modifications are highly reliable and economic. Among their main advantages are low specific fuel consumption, ability to take off in the extreme weather conditions, "hot and high" characteristics. These engines are simple to service and repair because of their modular construction.
The exhaust section of the bypass duct is arranged to make it possible to equip the engine with a thrust reverser.
