Friedrichshafen G.III

The G.II's offensive load of just 450kg and range were not adequate for major attacks on British and other strategic targets, so the G.III was developed: a much larger aircraft carrying the normal crew of three but with an offensive load of 1500kg. Power for the G.III was provided by two 194kW Mercedes D.IVa engines.

During 1917 Friedrichshafen concentrated on the production of the G.III and G.IIIa (with a biplane instead of conventional monoplane-type tail unit), with many others being built under contract by Daimler and Hansa. It is not known how many G.IIIs and G.IIIas were built in total, but more than 330 were produced by the subcontractors.
