French term or phrase: forte puissance de calcul
Hello, it's me again. I'm still editing that financial document and came across the above. Here's the whole sentence, "Etudes et R&D rattachée à la Division Automobile et dirigée par XXXX constitue une forte puissance de calcul au service des plateaux décrits ci-dessus." It has been translated as, "R&D department (Automotive division), managed by XXXX. This department makes available significant computation capacity to the platforms described above." I'm not so keen on that. Suggestions would be welcome. Also what is the Englsih translation of "avion coque nue?"

Merci d'avance.
