Wasp Major engine

The Wasp Major engine was developed during World War II though it only saw service late in the war on some B-29 and B-50 aircraft and after the war. It represented the most technically advanced and complex reciprocating engine produced in large numbers in the United States. It was a four-row engine, meaning it had four circumferential rows of cylinders.
