Around 30,000 copies of the Sakae 12 aircraft radial engine were built by the Japanese manufacturer Nakajima Aircraft Company between 1939 and 1945. Among other things, it was used in the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, the famous Japanese long-distance fighter plane.

The main feature of the engine, which was highly innovative at the time, is its star-shaped pistons. A major advantage is the resulting compactness. The Sakae 12 had two rows of seven pistons each. If a more powerful engine was required, more rows of pistons were simply added.
