    I'm sure that alot of you guys are aware that Germany used diesel engines in some of thier aircraft. The Jumo205 is the best example of this, being a two-stroke opposed piston configuration.

    Well, the OPOC is back, and it's really looking good this time around:

    Napier's Deltic was based in part on Junker's early designs, though Napier went with a triad design instead of the typical horizontal layout (Junkers did try a diamond config with the Jumo223) but these were applied to maritime uses...
