    This is one serious motor

    With 36 cylinders I’m sure it does the job it was designed to do well.

    o 5,000 hp (3,730 kW) at 2,600 rpm takeoff
    o 4,000 hp (2,985 kW) at 2,300 rpm cruise
    4000 HP day and night, “cruise speed”, is nothing to sneeze at.

    Yeah, I’d hate to pay to fill the tank that is needed.
