Called Dragon Fire, powered by a 42-cylinder Zvezda. Apparently the engine was converted to gasoline (or?) from diesel, since it has distributors and spark plug wires draped all over it.

Tractor Pull

Interesting sound, although the firing pattern of each bank is the same as an inline six or V-12; I wonder how loud it is in person. The displacement per cylinder is roughly on par with a Wright R-1820.
