A cool video about a diesel engine. Here's what I'm wondering. What does the starter motor on this thing look like?

I don't think I can transplant that into my truck or tractor!

I have seen huge marine engines that two men could stand in a cylinder bore----They were started with compressed air.

With that Surge or air and into exhaust, is this then a 2-stroke?  2 Very Big strokes!!  Hard to imagine someone can think these things up at this size. Wonder what kind of clearances the parts have? Pretty Amazing.    Didn't get good look at starter, so not sure what we are asking/saying on that point.
