Aviatik D II
|FIGHTER||Virtual Aircraft Museum / Germany / Aviatik|
The Automobil und Aviatik AG of Leipzig-Heiterblick licence-built the Halberstadt D.II as the Aviatik D.I - later known as the Halberstadt D.II(Av) - before, in late 1916, developing and building an original single-seat fighter as the D.II. Powered by the 160hp Daimler D III six-cylinder water-cooled engine and carrying an armament of two synchronised 7.92mm LM-G 08/15 machine guns, the D.II was a staggered single-bay biplane with wooden, fabric-covered wings and a steeltube (forward) and wood (aft) fuselage largely ply covered. The Aviatik fighter did not find favour with the Idflieg and further development was discontinued, only the one prototype being built.
