Justo-san, how do you think about this very surprising and interesting DB624 engine?
I imagine that Daimler Benz must be appealed this engine for Messerschmitt high altitude fighter or high altitude recon/bomber.
This engine had mechanical drive(Valkan coupling drive?) superchargers at both side of the engine as the first and the second stage supercharger, and also had turbo charger as the third stage supercharger at the bottom of the engine.
Intercoolers were located exit of the first stage supercharger and exit of the second stage supercharger.
Unbelievable layout. B)
The information on the DB 624 is very rare. In my opinion, this engine was designed to power the Henschel Hs 130 D

the Messerschmitt Bf.109Z was a real design,and there is two versions,Z-1 & Z-2.

I can't recall where I got the attached image from, but I have an old note that it represents the EG RZ65 integrated rocket launcher.
Jens, I suspect you just mis-spelt "...to do their best to buttress up anything to NOT go to the East front."Jemiba said:there were lots of ideas, put on paper by people, just trying to do their best for the final victory.
Yes, you point out one of the key limits of the researchers' methods in that era.And those ideas not necessarily always had a useful substance, but were forwarded nevertheless, on official paper, so becoming "real" projects, when found later !
