Me: I need a 2000HP engine.
P&W: Oh no, we are not willing and/or able to copy the Napier Sabre, and solve all the problems with sleeve valves. Woe is us!
And It you insisted on a sleeve valve liquid cooled engine instead of a radial P & W would have whipped out the Blue prints for their OWN H-24 sleeve valve X-1800
And it's big brother and said
"No need for one of them foreign engines, we got what you need right right here, just give us enough money (and time and priority clearances) and you can have your hearts desire"
