The Aviatik 30.24 (this designation indicating that it
was the 24th experimental aircraft produced by O-UF
Aviatik) single-seat fighter triplane designed by von
Berg appeared in May 1917. Employing a similar structure
to that of the D.I and a basically similar fuselage,
the Aviatik 30.24 was powered by a 200hp Austro-Daimler engine and carried an armament of two synchronised
8-mm Schwarzlose 07/12 machine guns. Performance
was marginally inferior to that of the similarly-
powered D.I, and only one prototype of the
triplane was therefore completed.
