The engine is an Arsenal 24H, something like a double-Jumo 213, if I understand correctly:

As the naming says, it's a H-configuration and not a X. Hence it's constructed by use of Jumo 213 -parts and not by combining two of the V-engines!
BTW: Damn it! I scrolled a listing of all French aviation engines through in the search, but was focused on the 'X' and something recalls remembrance around the '24H' in the list! Close, but no cigar :-(

No problem! A X-configuration was the most likely due to the rows of exhaust-stacks!
BTW: In contradiction to the Napier-Sabre H-engine stays the cylinders on this Arsenal engine up/down in an actual H-figure!

I enjoyed learning about this engine, even though it's not in X. Even knowing that it's an H, it wouldn't have been easy to find any information. Thanks.

OK, here are the solutions:

Thanks to forum.keypublishing.co.uk, they use to know such things.

 

I think Argus were trying to build a similar engine during the war.

 

The Argus As 413 was based on Jumo 213 parts:

 

 

The As 413 was a water-cooled H-24 with reduction gearing for contra-props. Output was 4,000 hp (2,983 kW). It may have run, or perhaps was scheduled to run, in 1945. I believe is did use cylinder blocks and other parts from the Jumo 213. If we assume it had the same bore and stroke (150/165 mm, 5.9/6.5 in) as the Jumo 213, then total displacement would be 70 L (4,270 cu in). That seems reasonable with the output.
