Excerpt: The Rolls-Royce Crecy was an unusual British experimental two-stroke, 90-degree, V12, liquid-cooled aero-engine of 1,536 cu.in (26 L) capacity, featuring sleeve valves and direct petrol injection. Developed between 1941 and 1945 it was the most advanced two-stroke aero-engine ever to be built. The engine was named after the Battle of Cr cy, battles being the intended names for future Rolls-Royce two-stroke engines, however no further engines of this type were built.

The Crecy was intended to power the Supermarine Spitfire after flight testing in a converted Hawker Henley, but neither aircraft type flew with this engine fitted. The project was cancelled in December 1945 as the progress of jet engine development overtook that of the Crecy and replaced the need for this engine. Sir Henry Tizard, Chairman of the Aeronautical Research Committee (ARC), was a proponent of a high-powered sprint engine for fighter aircraft and had foreseen the need for such a powerplant as early as 1935 with the threat of German air power looming.

It has been suggested that Tizard influenced his personal friend Harry Ricardo to develop what eventually became known as the Rolls-Royce Crecy. The idea was officially discussed for the first time at an engine sub-committee meeting in December ...
