An improved variant of the licence-built Pegasus engine.

Built by the No.1 Engine Factory in Warsaw–Okęcie on the licence of Bristol Aeroplane Company. It replaced in production the unsuccessful Pegaz II engine. During 1936–1937 over 350 Pegaz VIII engines were built. The Pegaz VIII was replaced in production by the Pegaz XX, intended for the PZL.37 Łoś (Moose) and PZL.46 Sum (Catfish) aircraft. The Pegaz VIII powered the PZL.23B Karaś (Crucian), PZL.30 and PZL.42 aircraft.
