    Why are you comparing an a/c engine to a tank engine ???

    The version of the R1820 put in the M6 tank weighed a lot more than the dry weight of the engine put on a/c buddy.

    But if you want to use a/c engines then why not compare it to the DB605 which produces 1455 HP at 756 kg...

    Yes, aero enigines such as Merlin can be mounted into heavy tanks.

    G200 Dry weight: 1,184 lb (537 kg).

    G200 is an old engine compared with Db605, and merlin vs DB605 is off topic.

    Err, no, that is the weight of the 1,000 HP G2 engine, which is not the 900 HP G200 engine which was designed for vehicle use and much heavier.
