Sounds like I-5 in northwestern Oregon. On a door-to-door time basis, the left lane is the slowest of the three.

Not so revolutionary, that concept was used by Fairbanks-Morse in diesel locomotives and marine applications in the 40’s and 50’s!

Since it's a 2 stroke, the emissions controls required to meet federal requirements are likely nuts. Of course, the military doesn't have to worry about the EPA or CARB.

And no stranger to military applications, either.
Those marine versions powered some of our diesel submarines.

Yes, definitely not new. Gemini has been working on a similar engine for primarily aircraft use but other applications are also possible. 3 cylinder O/P design as well. 100HP with just the blower, 125HP with added turbo. Gemini Diesel engines
