Title: Mid-section of a can-annular gas turbine engine to introduce a radial velocity component into an air flow discharged from a compressor of the mid-section

A midframe portion (113) of a gas turbine engine (110) is provided, including a compressor section (112) with a last stage blade (124). The compressor section (112) is configured to introduce a radial velocity component into an air flow (111) such that the air flow is discharged from the compressor section (112) at a mixed direction based on a combined longitudinal velocity component and radial velocity component. The midframe portion (113) further includes a manifold (121) to directly couple the air flow from an outlet of the compressor section (112) to an inlet of a respective combustor head (118) of the gas turbine engine (110).
