Either whoever's in charge has amnesia that the engine type is already existing, or it needs some arcane techniques that needs the whole engine to be rediscovered...:sceptic:

 

Seriously, why?

The M-105 engines on teh Pe-2 are teh same way, the LaGG-3 and Yak's all use the same engine, only thing I can think of is maybe the wing mounted arrangement is the reason for it

IRL the P47 and F4U used the same double wasp engine, but you have to research them separately. I think someone wants a minimum cost to grind one tier to the next

Very true, they have to ballance the amount of XP you are forced to grind for each plane.

They at least have the excuse of naming clearly differently versions rather than something that can be confused as a typo.

 

However, the F2G and XP-72 share a Wasp Major, R-4360-41.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

A similar situation exists for Mitsubishi J4M and Kyushu J7W1, both of which use the MK9D engine.  However, the MK9D engine is tier VII on J4M, and tier VIII J7W1, despite being the same power 2300hp.

 

It may have to do with supercharging of the engine that is not otherwise indicated in the designation.  There may be indicators in the development narrative.

I think that case has more to do with premium status...because premium modules are normally segregated from the tech tree ones.

Probably has something to do with the Thunderbolt family being big enough to be turbosupercharged while the Corsair family uses plain supercharger...
