first time I red about what the Swiss did to the Morane, I thought it was a joke. They really turned a donkey (MS-406) into a thoroughbred(D-3803)
What Saurer did with the 12Y31 is equally amazing. They raised power all the way from 830 hp to 1430 hp. nealry twice as much !
Only the soviets got similar results, turnng the 12Y into the M-100 / M-103 / M-105 family.
In turn, it drives me nuts that French pilots of 1940 had to fight 1100 hp Me-109s with only 860 hp engines.
