Warbird Engines

During the period between the World Wars, aircraft engines improved dramatically and made possible unprecedented progress in aircraft design. Engine development in those days, and to a large extent even today, is a very laborious, detailed process of building an engine, running it to destruction, analyzing what broke, designing a fix, and repeating the process. No product ever comes

to market without some engineers having spent many long, lonely, anxious hours perfecting that product. This is especially true of aircraft engines, which by their very nature push all the limits of ingenuity, materials, and manufacturing processes.

Improvements in superchargers greatly assisted the increased production of power, and also allowed the engine to produce sea-level

power at considerably greater altitudes than non-supercharged engines. Early superchargers were just "rotary induction systems", and served little purpose other than to assure equal distribution of fuel to all cylinders. As engine development progressed, superchargers became better and better compressors by providing higher pressure while consuming less power.

 BMW 801 radial aircraft engine      BMW 801 radial aircraft engine

 The BMW engine offered two big advantages over the Bf 109's water-cooled Daimler Benz.
First, its massive bulk up front helped protect the pilot. Second, it could absorb a lot of battle damage and keep running; like the American P-47, tales spread of Fw 190's making it back to base with a cylinder head shot away. ...

 Bristol Centaurus radial engine      Bristol Centaurus radial engine

 The Bristol Centaurus is a sleeve valve radial, and a very good one.
This historically significant engine also features a two-stage supercharger and fuel injection. The Centaurus engine was used in WWII British Fighters and later in post war commercial prop driven airliners. ...

 Daimler Benz DB 601 engine      Daimler Benz DB 601 engine

 The DB 601 was basically an improved DB 600 with direct fuel injection. The primary differences between the 605 and 601 were greater displacement and a more powerful supercharger.
Direct fuel-injection gave the Bf-109 a major advantage over the Spitfire when pulling negative Gs. ...

 Junkers Jumo 004 Jet engine      Junkers Jumo 004 Jet engine

 The advanced German submarine U-234 made an attempt in 1945 to deliver a cargo of high end, top secret technology to the Japanese Empire which never made it to port.
—within this cargo were complete technical drawings and examples of the Junkers Jumo 004 turbo jet engine. ...

 Nakajima Sakae 21      Nakajima Sakae 21

 Navy designations were Sakae (Glory, Prosperity) 10, 20 and 30 series. The Imperial Army used the designations Ha-25, Ha-105 and Ha-115.
The significant difference between Sakae 21 and 31 was simply the water-methanol injection system. ...
