Hi everybody,

i'm currently researching on WW2 aircraft focusing mainly on the soviets. I already got good information on the aircraft themselves but i'm having troubles trying to find anything on the "less popular" engines they used, such as the M-90 M-83 M-72 AM-39 etc.

I know that most of these engines never overcame prototype status and therefore didn't play an important role during the war but a lot of aircraft were developed with a certain engine in mind which eventually never became available.

i'm glad about any information you can give me, from technical data to the "story behind the engine" (where des it come from, what was changed compared with its predecessor and why).

thx in advance.

All this information is from this book.

I don't think that you will be able to find out that much more, as I think that this book is definitive. Let me know if you want anything more, or if I got anything wrong so far.
