The Pratt &
Whitney R-1340 Wasp was
an air-cooled radial aircraft engine with nine cylinders. The bore and
stroke were both 5.75 inches (146mm). The design was considered
exceptionally clean and formed the basis for the important R-1830 Twin Wasp and R-2600 Double Wasp.
The R-1340 was used on the P-26
Peashooter and T-6 Texan.
