Rolls Royce Crecy – The Most Advanced Piston Aero Engine Never Made.

From Curious Droid.
The Rolls Royce Crecy was a revolutionary piston aero engine that promised to take over from where the Merlin/Griffin engines left off with power level up to a possible 5000 hp from its two-stroke sleeve valve double blower design all from a 26 litre V-12. This is the story of the Rolls Royce Crecy and why you’ve probably never heard of it.
