Aviatik (Berg) D.I

Designed by Dipl Ing Julius von Berg and frequently referred to as the Berg Scout, the D.I was the first single-seat fighter of indigenous design to be manufactured in quantity by the Osterreichisch-Ungarische Flugzeugfabrik Aviatik of Vienna. The prototypes of the D.I were the Av 30.19, 30.20 and 30.21, and the first of these was flown on 24 January 1917, differing from the subsequent production model primarily in lacking armament. Of wooden construction with ply fuselage skinning and fabric wing skinning, the D.I entered service with the Austro-Hungarian Luftfahrttruppe in the autumn of 1917, by which time armament had standardised on two synchronised 8mm Schwarzlose machine guns. Initial D Is had the 185hp Austro-Daimler six-cylinder inline engine, some 140 were built with the 160hp Austro- Daimler, and 200 and 225hp Austro-Daimlers were progressively introduced. Some 700 fighters of this Berg type were manufactured by the parent concern and under licence by Lohner, Lloyd, Thone und Fiala, MAG and WKF.
