Default mini ohv 4-stroke engine WaA 873 ,secret project?

hi,i have a little engine and cannot find anything about it,can someone help me?
it weighs only 4 kilogram,no makersname only a sort of b in a circle,a serial number
26041 ,an a WaA 873 number. the rockerarms have needle bearings.and the camfollowers have little roller just as a big engine.i think its a stationairy engine,because the valve springs are very soft. it about 70cc.
al the equipment engines i found are much bigger and 2-stroke.why did they build such a complex and small engine?
i have fotos, but not sure how to attach them

Default Little engine.

Maybe a generator engine ? Or a starter for a larger engine. Me 262 jets for exemple use a starter for the jet engine.
