Aviatik B.III

Oesterreichische-Ungarische Flugzeugfabrik Aviatik was the Austro-Hungarian branch of the German Aviatik company but produced aircraft of original design. The B.II of 1915 (120hp Austro-Daimler) and the B.III of 1916 (160hp Austro-Daimler) were basically reconnaissance aircraft, but carried a small number of 10kg bombs for light offensive missions. Defensive armament of a Schwarzlose machine-gun was standard on the B.III and a developed version of the B.II. The original B.II carried no gun. Following useful but unspectacular service, mostly on the Eastern Front, the Aviatiks Bs began (in 1916) a new career as trainers.

faster and twice as high as the earlier version but even this was not very competitive by the standards of the day.

The later BIII model did not handle as well as the earlier BII so this model was put back into production. The so called BII Series 34 was able to fly 50% faster and twice as high as the earlier version but even this was not very competitive by the standards of the day.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
