The Merlin engine was developed by Rolls-Royce in 1933 and soon found its way into the Supermarine Spitfire. The unit’s large capacity initially led to an output of a good 1,000 hp, but this was doubled over the course of its life.

In addition to the Spitfire, the engine was also used in many other aircraft, including the de Havilland Hornet. And in the US, over 50,000 North American P-51 Mustangs were given a licence-built engine, while even tanks were fitted with a version of the engine.

The most well-known was this engine from the Spitfire; the majority of the 20,000 planes were ultimately equipped with it.
