Daimler Benz Aircraft Engines 1935 - 1945

From "Der Flieger", August 1962, maybe interesting for one or two, as one-offs and projects are mentioned, too.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

It sure is very interesting to me, Jens. Thanks for sharing this. Can I be rude enough to ask if that magazine has illustrations on DB engines :) ?

I can tell that the DB 608 is missing from that thorough list. It was a development of the DB 601 optimized for high altitudes, with 37l displacement and producing 1650Hp.
I`ve never seen that DB 624 photo. Great!!

Don't forget J.A.W.'s link in 'increasing the charge'

Here, a wartime British translation of an early D-B effort in the piston engine performance technology race..

http://kurfurst.org/Engine/Boostclearances/DB601AN_RPM_increse_nov40.PNG


This concerns the D-B way of increasing rpm, even from a fairly long stroke mill, & limiting boost while
maintaining high-ish static compression ratios as a means of maintaining fuel efficiency..

Is there any clue as to what project was going to use the pusher installation?
