In 1930's the Daimler-Benz company designed a new aircraft engine, the DB 600, with feeding system based on the carburettor placed behind the booster. In following versions the system was replaced by the direct fuel injection into the cylinders. The example in the Museum's collection is one of world's three existing DB 600 of the carburettor variant.

Initially, the DB 600 was intended to power the fighters. Eventually, they were assembled on the Heinkel He 111 bombers.
