Ha! Threw you off the trcak there, didn't I? Was just thinking, with all the aircraft kindly snapped up by the Luftwaffe (who would say no to a free aircraft?) during the war... How difficult would it have been for them, BMW, Junkers and others to clone the engines to be used in there own creations? What difference would it have made with a Ju-88, Bf-110 or '410 with Merlins or even a '190 with the same engine as the '47? Would it have been possible? How different was the quality of work between these engines and others?
