38,8 liter V12 tank engine 1st run after 28 years!

We're restoring an Iraqi Type 69-II (T54) tank. It was captured during the 1st Gulfwar in 1991. The tank has been on display in UK since then. We repaired this engine and this is the very first test!

The Type 69-II tank is a Chinese tank which looks a lot like the Russian T54 tank, most of the parts are exchangable. It was build by Norinco as well as the engine. This type of engine is also known as; v55, Kharkiv V2, Transmash, Silnik Wola.
