Pobjoy Engines: “Suavis et Fortis”

Compact in size and with an excellent performance were the main attributes of the this line “Waterfall” light radial engines manufactured by the Pobjoy company in the late interwar years. Quite alluring and utterly “made in Britain” looking, these little gems propelled a nice bunch of very interesting aircrafts. An old favorite of mine, I love, specially, the propeller reduction gear layout of some of them; quite a complicated gadget for engines of their class.
