Nope, it's still the same Conway from behind, mounted on a Lufthansa 707-430, S/N 17720.

that must be a gas-turbine engine, evident by the centrifugal compressor, i think the 3-pronged inlet guide vane is also a characteristic feature of this engine, but again, this one is a mystery to me

That gives me a few more hours to find the next quest image.
Nevertheless, this one is famous :D

I would think that from the internal shape it is either British or German designed.

I want to say that it's British, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's not.

No, the HeS 3B has the wrong intake as well as the first stage portion of the compressor

I'm pretty sure the forward inner duct is also a bit bigger and the first set of blades is not the consistent number. (I.e. 14)
