I was familiar with a couple of those. The three cylinder/6 piston opposed engine design was a copy of a diesel engine the Germans built for airplanes in WWII. If memory serves, they put three of them in a plane. Two to drive props and one in the belly to drive a big supercharger to feed the other two engines compressed air.
