Looking closer at where the air intake is I reckon it's probably a RR Meteor which is basically an unblown Merlin. Merlins had the air intake down low at one end to feed the centrifugal blower. Meteors were used in tanks. Still 27 litres but "only" 750hp. A much nicer running engine though. Nowhere near as cammy as a Merlin. --> http://www.youtube.c...
