RE 2004

Designed in 1943, it was never produced.

Design  was later than RE 2005 and it was started because of the lack of DB605  power units. The RE 2005 was hence reengineered with an italian power  unit, namely the Isotta Fraschini Zeta RC24/60.

That unit was a 24 cylinders engine, with a "X" layout, basically two air-cooled V12 engines.

The air cooling was the major issue for the engine.
