Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Gnome 7 Lambda was a French designed, seven-cylinder, air-cooled rotary aero engine that was produced under license in Britain and Germany. Powering several World War I era aircraft types it was claimed to produce 80 horsepower (60 kW) from its capacity of 12 litres (720 cubic inches) although recorded figures are lower. Just under 1,000 units were produced in Britain, the majority (967) by the Daimler Motor Company of Coventry. A 14-cylinder variant was known as the Gnome 14 Lambda-Lambda.show more
