@Aktungbby: Before 1940, but i am sure it has been in service by the Luftwaffe in 1940, if not as a bomber or in a typically military role as far as i know.
@Jim, and Aktungbby: Not a Junkers G38
(and the photo of the Junkers is nice though the Mercedes seems to have been photoshopped into it . The G 38 is worth an own thread, it was gigantic for the time and almost futuristic, if there would not have been this old-fashioned tail. Junkers had planned to build a giant flying wing, and this was an experiment in this direction, with some passengers sitting in the wings and havin a a nice view ahead..)

^ the form is a bit like the Junkers 90, streamlined and elegant, but the plane asked for is smaller and not a Junkers.

@Skidman: BMW engines were not planned for this plane, and it never flew with engines from BMW.

@Aktungbby: It never flew with DB engines. There were special altitude engines planned from another company (not BMW or DB), but not ready at the time. So they intendend to use Daimler-Benz DB 601 engines, but they soon became to be reserved for fighter planes.
So they had to initially use smaller engines with less power, but the plane still performed promising.

The plane was built for special civilian purposes and had some very special features. The second version of this plane had a different nose, another had a changed layout for military use.
Not much were built, but it was not an experimental plane.
