It was obvious from the outset that a pair of such engines would be inadequate to provide the power needed for the relatively large and heavy fighter envisaged.
However, the Daimler-Benz Aktiengesellschaft was actively engaged in developing a new 12-cylinder liquid-cooled inverted-vee engine, the DB 600, which held promise of 1,000 hp (746 kW) and on the premise that such engines would be available for his prototypes, Messerschmitt began the design of the BF 110.
To fill the gap an improved version of the BF 110 was introduced, the G-series with the dB 605 engine which provided 1,475 hp (1100 kW) for take-off and 1,355 hp (1011 kW) at 18,700 feet.

 Messerschmitt Bf 109E 'Emil'
The design allowed for either the 12 cylinder Daimler-Benz DB 600 or Junkers Jumo 210 powerplants while the airframe was capable of the high turn and roll rate the German Air Ministry required.
Soon followed more experimental models which led up to the V14 and V15 which introduced the new DB 601A-1 inverted Vee engine rated at 1,050 hp at take off which was fitted with a fule injection system that allowed the fighter to make negative-G maneuvers without causing the engine to cut off.
This was developed from the Bf 109E-7 using a DB 601E engine rated at 1,350 hp for take-off.

 Messerschmitt Bf 110 - Germany
However, the Daimler-Benz Aktiengesellschaft was actively engaged in developing a new twelve-cylinder liquid-cooled inverted-vee engine, the DB 600, which held promise of 1,000 h.p.; and on the premise that such engines would be available for his prototypes, Messerschmitt began the design of the Bf 110.
A key factor in the design was the use of two Daimler-Benz DB 600 engines; subsequent difficulty in obtaining enough of these to power development aircraft meant that the Bf 110 could not be tested during the Spanish Civil War.
To fill the gap an improved version of the Bf 110 was introduced, the G-series with the DB 605 engine which provided 1,475 h.p.

 Tandem Engine Aircraft
Daimler benz had a plane that would have built by an regular aircraft company.
The Junkers EF 112 of 1942 had 2 Daimler Benz DB 603G piston engines developing 1460HP One engine was mounted in the nose pulling and one was mounted in the fuselage tail pushing contra-rotating props between twin boom fuselages.
Blohm and Voss had the P.163.01 bomber used a DB 613C, which was two DB 603G engines mounted side-by-side, and the BV P.163.02 was powered by a BMW 803, two 14 cylinder radial engines mounted in a tandem arrangement.

 EADS N.V. - Messerschmitt Bf 109
With the availability of the much more powerful engines DB 600 A (1,000 HP) and DB 610 A (1,100 HP) a new stage of development in the history of the Bf 109 was entered.
In April 1941 the first aeroplane arrived at Daimler-Benz in Echterdingen and was there re-equipped with the DB 605 A. Although again heavier than its predecessors the "Gustav" was the up to this time fastest version of the Bf 109, though its flight characteristics were much worse, especially the manoeuvrability.
Because the DB 605 A engine wasn't available on large scale anymore only a small series was produced that also included some two-seated training aeroplanes with the designation C-110 (later CS 99).

By the late summer the Jumo engines were starting to become available, and V2 was completed with the Jumo 210A of 610 hp (448 kW) in October 1935.
The DB 605 suffered several reliability problems during the first year of operation forcing Luftwaffe units to lower max power to ~1310 hp until october/november 1943.
Other changes included an enlarged supercharger for the DB 605 and the enlarged vertical stabilizer (G-5 onwards).

The wings were improved and enlarged, with new landing gear and heavy armament of 3 20mm cannon and 2 12.7mm machine guns.
The first prototype was ready in December 1941, but lacked the engine for 4 months from Germany (the Daimler Benz inline).
The Re.2005 was fast and maneuverable and used the Fiat 1,475 hp inline license built version of the Daimler-Benz DB 605 engine.

 Henschel Hs P.75 Luft '46 entry
The widened fuselage was designed to house the Daimler Benz DB 610 engine, which were two DB 605 engines joined side-by-side, just aft of the cockpit.
These were the same engines that the Heinkel He 177 used, and were found to be prone to overheating and catching fire.Due to this development, they were changed in 1942 to the liquid-cooled, 24 cylinder Daimler Benz DB 613 engines (two coupled DB 603s) that produced 3500 horsepower.
Both engine configurations were to drive contrarotating propellers (to offset tourque) of a 3.2m (10' 6") diameter via an extension shaft.

 LemaireSoft's Bf 109: global   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
It should have been armed with a 20 mm gun firing through the propeller hub, but the vibrations were such that the idea was dropped.
This version, appeared in 1938, brought two innovations, which remained until the last Me 109: a Daimler Benz engine, performing better than the Jumo, and the 20 mm gun that fired through the propeller.
Despite a leap forward in performance, this version was built only in a limited number, because a new more reliable version of the engine appeared, opening the way for the Bf 109E.

 THE GREAT PLANES Community - Greg's Obscure Types: H and I
A radical aircraft, the He-119 had a pair of coupled DB V-12 engines driving a single prop via a gearbox and a long driveshaft.
French resistance workers conspired to slow down development of the He 274 so that the prototypes were not ready at the time of the German withdrawal in July 1944.
This 1941/1942 design was for a single seat fighter built around a single 2,200 hp Daimler Benz DB 610 engine, which was actually two DB 605 engines joined side-to-side.

The fighter thus took the form of a compact, all-metal, low-wing monoplane with retractable landing gear and an enclosed cockpit.
Originally it had been planned to install the new 610 hp Junkers Jumo 210A engine, but because this power plant was unavailable, the prototype was fitted with the Rolls-Royce Kestrel V engine, generating 695 hp at takeoff and driving a two-bladed wooden propeller.
The aircraft was completed in September 1935, and a month later it began comparative tests together with the other prototypes created in response to the same specifications.

 The Bf 109 in Spain
A new tailwheel design (without the "scissor" link found on earlier aircraft) was introduced, 'though it is unclear whether this was a characteristic of all D versions, or was introduced during the life of the D series.
It seems that the original plan was for the D series to be DB 600 powered, but that shortage of the engine meant that the Jumo 210 D was used instead.
In preparation for the planned introduction of the DB 600 engine, the aircraft was strengthened, and it was as part of this upgrade that the rear wheel design change was made.

The He 119 had a DB 606 or DB 610 'double' engine, buried in the fuselage, driving a propeller in front of the glass, unstepped nose.
The requirement that it would be able to act as a dive-bomber, and the insistence on using two engines DB 610 engine -- units consisting of two joined DB601 engines -- were responsible for this failure of an otherwise good design.
Two Daimler-Benz DB 603 engines were supplied with a air by a compressor, driven by a DB 605.

Known as the “Ken” in the Allied name designations of Japanese aircraft, this bird was an experimental exercise extension of the KI 61 Hein in the use of the Daimler-Benz DB 601A V-12 in a lighter package.
Like the KI 61 “Tony” the Benz engine would have been a Kawasaki-built power plant with 1,550 HP.
The V6 also had upgraded to a pair of DB 500A V-12 with 1,000 HP each from Junkers Jumo 210Gs of 730 HP.

 Dornier Do 317
Two versions were proposed: the simplified and less ambitious Do 317A powered by two DB 603A engines and featuring conventional defensive armament, and the more advanced Do 317B with DB 610 engines, remotely-controlled defensive barbettes, and an extended wing.
Six prototypes of the Do 317A were ordered, and the first of these, the Do 317 V1 (VK+IY), commenced its flight test programme in 1943.
The DB 603A 12-cylinder liquid-cooled engines were each rated at 1,750 h.p.

 Saab 21
As Saab at this time was busy developing and manufacturing the bombers B 17 and B 18, both L-12 and L-13 were put on the back burner.
In 1941 the air force arranged for purchase and licence production of Daimler Benz DB 601 engines, and Saab was told to expect to use DB 601 and DB 603 engines for future projects.
In 1943 71 DB 605B engines of 1475 hp were purchased at the same time a licence production contract was signed.

 Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2
It was armed with two fuselage mounted machine guns and two wing mounted cannons and it became the main fighter of the Luftwaffe for the first few years of the war.
The worse agility was compensated by better climbing rate and better reliability of the engine wich had direct injection fuel system and had no problems with negative G-forces.
The vast majority of the 1172 planes that RAF's Fighter Command lost during the battle were victims of the Bf 109 E. Luftwaffe lost 1792 planes of which 610 were Bf 109 E-type.

 WW2 Warbirds: the Messerschmitt Bf 109 - Frans Bonné
Production of the Bf 109F-0 then started, but because the Daimler-Benz DB 601E as well as the 15 mm MG 151 cannons were not available, these aircraft were fitted with 1 × Daimler-Benz DB 601N rated at 1,200 hp (895 kW), and a 20 mm MG FF in stead of the 15 mm MG 151.
Because the Bf 109G-1 was meant to be a pure fighter, the forward armament was restricted to 1 × 20 mm MG 151/20 cannon in a moteur-canon installation, and 2 × 0.312 inch (7,92 mm) MG 17 fixed forward-firing guns in the upper part of the nose.
It was powered by 1 × Daimler-Benz DB 605L inverted-Vee with a 2-stage superchrager and with the MW 50 water-methonal power-boost system, rated at 1,700 hp (1.268 kW) at take-off and 1,350 hp (1.007 kW) at 31,400 ft (9.570 m).

The Messerschmitt's Daimler-Benz DB 601A engine had the advantage of fuel injection which enabled the aircraft to bunt (push negative g at the top of a manouvre or climb) without losing power.
Attacks on the enemy's road and rail communications were stepped up in preparation for the invasion of Normandy, and although the Germans knew an invasion was imminent, the wide dispersal of targets throughout the Channel area and inland gave no clue as to where it would be mounted.
The five Canadian squadrons of 126 Wing at Heesch lost one pilot from No 442 Squadron in combat, together with his Mk IX and another pilot from the same squadron was injured when he crashed on landing.
