Default Crosley Powered Military Unit

Stumbled across this interesting unit on eBay. Don't know the Mil designation, but has a Crosley engine, a Winpower generator head (of Newton, Iowa. Any connection to Maytag or just coincidence?), built by Hollingsworth.

Engine plate says it makes 21 hp at 3600 rpm.
Gen tag says 5000 watts of 120 VDC at 3600 rpm.
Even with typical military 'overbuild' that seems like twice the engine that a 5000 watt generator would need.
Interesting feature I noticed was the engine has a rewind rope starter built onto it.
Anyway - It is in a doghouse and has all the books, manuals, parts & tools with it. Looks like (nearly) new.
I have no connection to the seller.
