Rolls-Royce Merlin Engine
Considered a British icon, the Merlin was one of the most successful
aircraft engines of the World War II era, and many variants were built by
Rolls-Royce in Derby, Crewe and Glasgow,as well as by Ford of Britain at
their Trafford Park factory, near Manchester. The Packard V-1650 was a
version of the Merlin built in the United States. Production ceased in 1950
after a total of almost 150,000 engines had been delivered, the later
variants being used for airliners and military transport aircraft.
The PV-12 first ran in 1933 and, after several modifications, the first
production variants were built in 1936. The first operational aircraft to
enter service using the Merlin were the Fairey Battle, Hawker Hurricane and
Supermarine Spitfire. More Merlins were made for the four-engined Avro
Lancaster heavy bomber than for any other aircraft; however, the engine is
most closely associated with the Spitfire, starting with the Spitfire's
maiden flight in 1936. A series of rapidly applied developments, brought
about by wartime needs, markedly improved the engine's performance and
Many ascribe the victory during the Battle of Britain to the Merlin powered
Royal Air Force (RAF). And later its use in the American P-51 Mustang.
