      Correction. OPOC stands for Opposing Piston, Opposing Cylinder.

      Here is the enclosure and there is a video with the german engineer to explain how it works.

      Pretty interesting.

       

      Ken Ruiz was the CO of Bon Homme Richard (US aircraft carrier) in 1967 when I was Sqd CO aboard. He is a WWII hero. Read his book "Luck of the Draw" for details.  Marv.

      In WW II I was engineering officer for about two years on a submarine with 4 opposed piston Fairbanks Morse diesel engines.  The Navy copied the engine from railroad engines which were well tested and reliable.  They were very efficient and most important to us did not smoke and give away our position.  

       

      These are the engines that the railroads now advertise as moving a ton 500 miles on a gallon of fuel

       

      We used to go 1500 to 2000 miles into enemy territory and stay about two months with no support for the engines and would almost always return to port with all four still working.

       

      I always wondered why they were not used on more land vehicles.
