Don't now is there is a land-engine thread open but I'll start a thread on it anyways. Mods can merge this thread if they see fit.

One can drop all of the Chinese land-engine developments in this thread if they see fit. Chinese sources translated in English are welcome of course.

150HB series 16.9 litre V12 engine manufactured by Huabei Group. Base model rated for 1200 hp but there is also an improved 1500 hp variant, both engines are for Type 99(A). Rated for 2200 rpm, maximum 2450 rpm, so if we apply the appropriate calculations, the engine should produce around 4800 N.m of torque. Bore diameter 142mm, stroke length 130mm. Total weight of powerplant is around 2100 kg.

I used a very basic source, maybe these numbers are true, maybe not. If you'd like to verify them, you will have to learn Chinese. Or at the least, learn to navigate Chinese sites and forums using translation tools. This will help you a lot when it comes to PLA watching.

Let's get back on topic. Unlike AFV powerplants, aircraft engines are a closely guarded secret.
Thank you for the effort, but is there any official source for these numbers? I see you use 'appropriate calculations', how did you exactly come up with all these specific and detailed numbers?

Could you also post the link to this 'basic source'?

Power (kW) = Torque (N.m) x Speed (RPM) / 9.5488

So if you know the RPM and the power output, you can calculate torque.

I just did a quick search and found some numbers in a Sina Mil article, and some on Baidu Baike.

Some extra digging will probably be required for an official source.
