    It beats the WW2 like glasshouse it used to have. It is only an interim design until the H-20 is available anyway....

    A WP-8 provides 93.2 kN thrust and a Rolls-Royce Spery provides 54 kN thrust. Four Spery's are about 1.2t heavier than two WP-8s. That's about 15.8% increase in thrust and 19.7% increase in mass. What exactly were they trying to accomplish with H-6I back then?
