    The Beaufighter

    I have just started reading 'Beaufighter Boys' by Graham Pitchfork, and I have learned something interesting.
    The chapter one intro says:
    "With its massive ROTARY engines thrusting forward of the cockpit, the Beaufighter's sturdy profile portrayed a sense of power and aggression".

    I always thought that the Beaufighter was powered by Bristol Hercules RADIAL engines.
    Is this a typo? Or have I learned something new?

      Hi All,
      Wouldn't it be a fair comment is RADIALthe crank rotates inside the engine and ROTARY the engine rotates around the crank ?
