Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kuznetsov NK-12 is a Soviet turboprop engine of the 1950s, designed by the Kuznetsov design bureau. It drives huge eight-bladed (four per propeller) contra-rotating propellers 5.6 m (18ft 4.5in) in diameter (6.2 m (20ft 4.1in) in the NK-12MA and NK-12MV). The NK 12 turboprop was originally developed after World War II by a German ex-Junkers team under Ferdinand Brandner, evolving from late war German turboprop studies. This started with the post-war development of the wartime Jumo 012 turboprop design that developed 6000 ehp in a 3000 kg engine. The effort continued with a 5000 ehp engine that weighed in at 1700 kg, completed by 1947. The evolution to the TV-12 12000 Ehp engine required extensive use of new Soviet-developed alloys and was completed in 1951.show more
