This sound file is based on the Sopwith Camel, Nieuport 12 and 17, and Armstrong Whitworth F.K.10. The Clerget 9B was a nine-cylinder rotary aircraft engine of the World War I era designed by Pierre Clerget. Manufactured in both Great Britain (Gwynne Limited) and France, it was used on such aircraft as the Sopwith Camel. The Clerget 9Bf was an increased stroke version. The rotary engine was an early type of internal-combustion engine, usually designed with an odd number of cylinders per row in a radial configuration, in which the crankshaft remained stationary and the entire cylinder block rotated around it.
