92mm machine guns Service dates: 1917–1918 he “Berg Scout” was the first fighter designed and mass-produced in Austria. Although fastclimbing and maneuverable, it was distrusted by pilots because of a reputation for frailty. In the fall of 1916, the Osterreichische-Ungarische Flugzeugfabrik Aviatik of Vienna began constructing a single-seat version of its two-seater C I machine. ” The D I was a conventional biplane fighter with slightly staggered, single-bay wings. However, the fuselage was very deep, leaving only the pilot’s head exposed.

It also employed an enlarged, curved tailfin strongly reminiscent of the scouts, along with a triangular ventral fin attached to the tail skid. However, the motor, wing, and landing gear of the previous aircraft were retained. The overall effect of the new machine was sleek and elegant. However, for all its refinement, the C XII boasted little improvement over the C X in terms of performance. It was nevertheless deployed in some numbers and served alongside earlier versions until the Armistice.

In 1915, the company’s first effort at making warplanes, a Russian copy of the Voisin LA S, proved disastrous. The machine suffered from very poor lateral control and crashed inexplicably. The following year the company fielded an original design, the Anatra D, which was inspired by some captured German Aviatiks. The Anatra was a two-bay biplane with slightly backswept, unstaggered wings. These were constructed of wood and fabric, and the upper ones sported ailerons. The fuselage was likewise made of wood, being covered in aluminum up to the first undercarriage strut, then finished in fabric.
