The first single-seat fighter to be built by the Osterreichisch-
Ungarische Flugzeugfabrik Aviatik to the designs
of Dipl Ing Julius von Berg, the Aviatik 30.14 (the
designation indicating the 14th experimental aircraft
produced by O-UF Aviatik) was powered by a 185hp
Austro-Daimler six-cylinder inline water-cooled
engine. Armament consisted of a single 8mm Schwarzlose synchronised machine gun. Of wooden
construction with ply and fabric skinning, the Aviatik
30.14 crashed at Aspern on its first flight on 16 October
1916, the test pilot, Ferdinand Konschel, losing his life.
However, the programme had revealed sufficient
promise to warrant further development of the basic
design. The wing gap was drastically reduced, wing
stagger was introduced, the vertical tail surfaces were enlarged and, with more minor changes, three further
prototypes were built, the 30.19, 30.20 and 30.21, which
led to the D.I.
