|RED A03 V-12 engine|
|Type||Aircraft diesel engine|
|Manufacturer||RED Aircraft GmbH|
In 2012, its unit cost was US$170,000. The engine received type approval from the European Aviation Safety Agency in December 2014 for use in any CS-23 aircraft in both normal and utility categories. It powered the Yakovlev Yak-152 trainer on its 29 September 2016 first flight. The RED A03 is presented by the ILA Berlin Air Show as an application in the Aerobatic sector and for Defence and Security. The engine is proposed for the Hybrid Air Vehicles HAV 304/Airlander 10, a British hybrid airship design, powered by four engines and can be operated with two.
On 30 March 2020, RED Aircraft received a certificate of aerospace quality management system standard EN 9100:2018, based on ISO 9001:2015, from AirCert. RED Aircraft is a member of The German Aerospace Industry Association, itself a member of the International Astronautical Federation.
It has twin double overhead camshafts. A marine version was planned for 522 kW/700 hp at 3,900 rpm. The cylinder banks' angle is 80 degrees  It was designed by Vladimir Raikhlin, a German engineer born in Russia.
