Is that the Lycoming O-360 4 cylinder 180 hp like in the C177 ?

If so, that is a great motor - and would make the 172 a machine !
Effectively yes, but fuel injected

It is used for calibration but its not the same one that was doing a lot of calibration in SA a while back
That was a King Air 350 UR-CWA that was around here in early 2021

Yes, I'm certain that the Ukrainians have better things to attend to now than calibration tests in Africa... :(
