thanks for the correction.

Movie was correct regarding "bombing". BMW engines were used in Do-17 bomber aircrafts, the backbone of the bomber fleet for the Luftwaffe. though I wouldn't say "time" was the reason why Germany lost the Battle of Britain, i argue equipment and manpower shortage. Also implying a better BMW aircraft engine could have made the difference is also a stretch, the majority of aircraft engines were manufactured by Junkers during WWII, BMW was only working on a long range design and a turbojet which everyone else was working on as well.
