Slow? Ha! It's one of the highest-RPM aircraft piston engines of the 1940s and '50s, mostly because of being one of the smallest (yes, 27 liters is small in this context ). Think of it like equivalent of these compact but extremely stressed Japanese car and bike engines of today.

Napier Sabre was the only one in the world revving faster at just mindblowing 3800, while most other aircraft engines of the era being in 2400-2800 range (Edit: I forgot about the Jumo we've got in DCS, at 3200 it's not a slouch either )

But it's all indeed relatively low when compared to smaller, automotive engines.

Do you an example for a piston engined aircraft that has a gauge which indicates propeller RPM?
