Since the outbreak of war, a number of enemy aircraft have fallen into German hands, either shot down, forced to land, or captured in occupied territory. Thus, in addition to the aircraft, their armament and equipment, various types of engines of the enemy Powers—English, French and American — have become available for examination. Research on the materials has been carried out on behalf of the Reich Air Ministry by various German engine builders, and makers of components, and by the D.V.L.—the German Aeronautical Research Institute. The present report summarizes the principal results of this research; in view of the magnitude of the collected material, only the more important features of the engines will be dealt with.
