The Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp is an American twin-row, 18-cylinder, air-cooled radial aircraft engine with a displacement of 2,800 cu in (46 L), and is part of the long-lived Wasp family of engines. The R-2800 saw widespread use in many important American aircraft during and after World War II.

The R-2800-10 had a 2:1 gear reduction and drove four-bladed Curtiss Electric constant-speed propellers which had a 12 foot, 2 inch (3.708 meter) diameter. The R-2800-10 was 4 feet, 4.50 inches (1.334 meters) in diameter, 7 feet, 4.47 inches (2.247 meters) long, and weighed 2,480 pounds (1,125 kilograms), each.

Powered by a Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp 18-cylinder engine producing over 2000 horsepower, the Corsair could not only fly faster than 400 miles per hour, she was the first US single engine fighter to do so. It was not just fast, but also incredibly deadly, armed with six .50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns..

The Fairchild C-123K has two Pratt & Whitney R-2800 CB-16 Double Wasp, 18-cylinder, two-row air-cooled radial engines or as they say in air racing, "Big round motors." The C-123 also had two J-85 turbojet engines (two turning, two burning). We removed the jets and she flew fine with just two turning. The jet door actuators always gave problems.

The Wasp's manufacturer, Pratt & Whitney, was at the time a humble machine tool company with no connection whatsoever to aviation. Thanks to a risky bet on an unproven technology, today it's.

The Pratt & Whitney R-2800 was the most remarkable piston aircraft engine ever built. This compact 18-cylinder, twin-row radial powered a huge number of World War II fighters, bombers and cargo planes, then went on to propel fleets of 1950s airliners.

Pratt and Whitney's R-2800 (46 L) Double Wasp was America's first 18 cylinder radial engine. Although much smaller than the world's only other modern eighteen cylinder engine, the 3,442 cu in. (56.4 L) Gnome-Rhone 18L, it was nevertheless more powerful. While the Gnome-Rhône 18L produced 1,300 hp (970 kW), the R-2800 averaged 2,000 hp (1,490 kW).
