Rolls-Royce Merlin Packard V-1650
The Packard Motorcar Company mass
produced the Liberty 12 V-12 engine for use in World War I. The company
continued developing and producing aircraft engines after the war, but was
pretty much out of the aviation picture by the early 1930s.
Less well known is that Packard manufactured the LUSAC 11, a fighter
aircraft designed in 1917.
During World War II, Packard mass-produced the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine
under license. The Merlin received the designation V-1650 by the U.S.
