Yes, this is an obvious typo. The EKW C-3602 & C-3603 were powered by license built derivatives of the Hispano-Suiza 12 Y-51 12 cyl liquid cooled gasoline engine. These machines had around 750kW /1000PS but the C-3604 derivative had the 925kW /1250PS Sauer YS-2, a more powerful development of the 12 Y-51.

My Jane's 1946 says it's a Hisso 12y 1000 hp, but what is a pistone? Isn't that something that develops in your kidneys?

The engine was a Hispano-Suiza or (in the case of some postwar-built aircraft) its Swiss Saurer derivative.
Do you have any comments?
