I thought that the twin crank/opposing piston design was new and innovative whenI first saw it at Oshkosh. That is until I toured that WW II US submarine parkedat the San Fran pier while on a business trip and talked to a guide who usedto serve on them. They used two huge twin crank opposing piston diesel enginesturning generators (like a locomotive), and he said many 30s cargo shipsused them too.
